How To Smoke A Corned Beef Brisket Point On The @WeberGrills One-Touch Premium

I’m all about value, and when Stop and Shop East Gloucester had Corned Beef Brisket for $1.67/ lb I had to pick one up just on principal alone.  I’d never cooked one but it just might be about the easiest thing I’ve ever smoked.

Took it out of the package, trimmed up any really thick globs of fat and patted it dry with paper towels, then applied Black Pepper all over.

Set up the Weber 22 inch One-Touch Premium using the snake method and cherry chips and a chunk of apple wood for smoke.

Cooked between 235-300 til it reached 195 internal.

Sliced thin for sandwiches.

Piled on a bun with some spicy mustard. Easy and delicious.  I won’t pass on a deal like that again.

The @WeberGrills One-Touch Platinum Got The Call For The Reverse Sear Gorgonzola/ Roasted Red Pepper/ Pepperoncini Stuffed Ribeye

First make a horizontal cut in the Ribeye creating a pocket to add all our fixins.

Chop up some roasted red peppers and pepperoncini and add your favorite seasoning.  I used Montreal seasoning, you can use whatever you like.

2017-03-17 15.31.05

Stuff it with that yummy gorgonzola and then add the peppers.

2017-03-17 15.31.142017-03-17 15.32.172017-03-17 15.32.22

A couple of wooden skewers to seal the pocket.  It’s a good idea to soak the skewers in water for a bit so they’re less likely to burn when we sear the steaks.

After sealing the pocket a rub with EVOO and then Montreal Steak Seasoninng.

A full chimney of coals into the charcoal basket on one side of the kettle with a chunk of pecan for smoke.  Next place the steak on the other side of the kettle  for indirect cooking.  It will absorb some nice smoke flavoring and slowly climb internal temps.

Once the steak hits an internal of 110, place it directly over the coals for about a minute on each side, enough to produce some nice hash marks.

2017-03-17 15.57.26

Talk about a flavor packed steak.
