This is a ‘Dove Tail’ recipe. Yesterday Mr. B smoked a brisket in our little smoker. This was a 10 pound beauty. There is absolutely no way the two of us can eat 10 pounds of meat in one meal. Thus beautiful, wonderful brisket left-overs.
Let me back up a little. To Dove Tail is to take a dish and turn it into a completely different meal. You will begin to see a trend with me. Dove Tailing is a common occurance in this home. Once upon a time with a house full of kids, I’ve always cooked for an army because I never knew who would be at the dinner table. Growing boys, a growing tom-boy, their air-soft buddies, their girl friends or half the kids in the neighborhood, we always played “guess who’s coming to dinner“!
Back to this monster brisket. I sectioned it off into about 2 pound hunks, one went in the refrigerator for tonight’s tacos and the rest in the freezer.
