Smoked Brisket Chili

This is a great recipe for making at your 4th of July BBQ or with leftover brisket from your BBQ! Place your 14” Caliber Cauldera Iron Cooking Pot in the holder above the charcoal prior to lighting your fire. Heat your Caliber Pro Kamado smoker to about 250-300 degrees F (approximately 15-20 minutes) using lump charcoal within the center of the bottom charcoal plate.  Once the pot is heated, sauté your bacon in the cauldera until it is crispy.  Add the onions and cook until soft (about 5 minutes).  Add the bell peppers and garlic and cook an additional minute to soften.  Add the raw ground beef and dry seasonings.  Once cooked, add the brisket. Add the beer and allow it to deglaze the pan and cook off the alcohol (about 1-2 minutes).  Then add the coffee, Dr. Pepper, tomatoes, sauce, beans, corn and green chilies.

Add a small handful of pecan wood chips to the fire to give it an even smokier taste.  Close the lid to cook a minimum of one hour.  At this point, add salt to taste.  The longer it simmers the more flavorful the chili will become.  If the chili starts to get too thick, you can add water (1/2 cup at a time) to thin it out.

Ingredients to fit the 14” Caliber Cauldera Pot (CTP22-CCA):
12 oz pack of bacon, chopped
2 large sweet onions
2 red peppers and 1 orange pepper, chopped
6 teaspoons of garlic, finely diced
1 lb of ground beef
5-6 cups leftover smoked beef brisket (cut up into 1/2” cubes)
4 tablespoons chili powder (more if you prefer spicier)
2 tablespoons cumin
1/2 teaspoon dry chipotle seasoning
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
1 (12oz) bottle of beer and 1 can of Dr. Pepper
1/2 cup coffee (cold and leftover from your morning pot)
2 (15 oz) cans diced tomatoes
2 (15 oz) cans tomato sauce
1 (15 oz) can black beans (drained and rinsed)
1 (15 oz) can white beans (drained and rinsed)
1 (15 oz) can kidney beans (drained and rinsed)
1 (15 oz) can of corn (drained and rinsed)
2 small (4 oz) cans of diced green chilies
Salt to taste at end

Additional Toppings:
Sour cream
Shredded cheddar cheese
Chopped cilantro
Chopped sweet onions
Chopped serrano chilies

Smoked Brisket

Kick off the summer with this great recipe! A brisket, when cooked right, is a delicious and less expensive meat to serve at a BBQ party.

Prepare the Caliber Pro Kamado Smoker by filling the indirect blaze basket accessory with lump charcoal. The basket should sit on the charcoal plate at the rear of the smoker with the hinged part of the grate above it for easy access. Bring the temperature of the smoker up to 230-275ºF. Trim the fat from the brisket. Dust a light coating of salt and pepper or your favorite meat dry rub on your brisket and place it on the top grate once the temperature has settled.

Now add a small handful of apple and pecan smoking chips to the blaze basket and close the lid. The smoker will “smoke” for the first 30-60 minutes of the 9-10 hour cooking process. After this time, there should be “clean” heat exiting the top vent. Too much time with smoke may impart a bitter taste. Continue to cook the brisket, checking them every hour or so with the heat not exceeding 250-275ºF until the brisket reaches an internal temperature of 200ºF.

You will be amazed by how juicy this brisket is without having to inject broth into it or refuel your coals during the process. There are also lots of fabulous recipes out there to change up your brisket and create other meals with your leftovers.

Ingredients for Smoked Brisket:
12-15 pound brisket with fat trimmed to 1/4”
Your favorite meat dry rub, or just salt and pepper
