The Food Lab's Complete Guide to Sous Vide Smoked Brisket

Did this over the weekend :-) great results and my date thought it was "perfect"

I started with a whole prime packer from costco,$ 3.29/lb (steal i think) I separated the point and flat without trimming any fat, rubbed the two pieces with the salt/prague powder/pepper combo, squirted some liquid smoke, and then vacuum sealed it. Set my anova to 152 and placed it in there for 36 hours.

After 36 hours, i set the oven to 275 and placed the brisket on a wired rack on top of a baking sheet and 3.5 hours later, i noticed that i didn't have quite a substantial bark but the meat moist and tender. Easily better than most bbq joints as kenji mentioned.

Next time i think i'll up liquid smoke and use less of the prague powder (my faux smoke ring was probably 2-3 cms thick which made it look super artificial :-(

Otherwise, this recipe is awesome and many people were fooled and thought i did indeed smoke the brisket :-) Going to make another one this weekend for my bday weekend :-)
