I'm going to make some sandwiches with this recipe, because I LOVE corned beef.
Grub Rubbed and Smoked Corned Beef BrisketPrep: 6 hours Cook: 7 hours Servings: 12by Smokinhotchef370 recipes>
This recipe turned out fabulous even though I used a corned beef brisket instead of the traditional brisket. I created a wonderful spice blend especially for grilled meats and coined it Neillio's Grub Rub. Let the brisket marinate in the rub for 1/2 day to 24 hours. I used both the grill and the oven for this recipe and feel great about it. That way I could smoke the brisket one evening and finish it off for before mealtime the next day! This method made more sense for my schedule. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family and I did. I also served this brisket with a warm Asian Slaw that worked magnificently.
