Cooking Methods for 3 to 4-pound Beef Brisket


  • Instant Pot Pressure Cooking Method same method as above for slow cooker except for cook time will be for 1 hour and 15 minutes check for tenderness use an instant-read thermometer  internal temperature reads  145 degrees and the meat shreds easily note: 175 degrees if using a pork roast
  • Oven Roasting  Use a Reynolds Cooking Bag (poke holes in the bag around 6), season meat, add ingredients and cook to package instructions
  • Electric Smoker Method season, cover with foil add wood chips, and water to the tray in the smoker, set to 250 degrees cook for 3 to 4-pound  in a disposable pan until it  reaches 175 degrees inside use an instant-read thermometer in the thickest parts
  • Gas Grill  if you have a smoker chamber for the grills this can be done in the same method as electric smoker instructions reach 145 degrees with a thermometer however I use a pan covered with the top of the grill open for the first hour

  2. This sure is timely, I am thawing a pork roast right now! I was not sure what I was going to do with it, but I wanted something different from the usual pork carnitas. Asian does sound like a nice change and I like the suggestion of having it over rice. Thanks Claudia-I am sure I will be enjoying this soon!
