Smoked Brisket


We are now in possesion of Billy Purdom’s smoked  Brisket  recipe.






Humble Hill-Billy’s Brisket Recipe




  1. I use ½ Italian dressing and ½ beer
  2. I do not always use a marinade, just depends on the amount of time I have.




  1. Make out of 1/3 Cayenne Pepper, 1/3 Salt, 1/3 Black Pepper and add a little Sugar.
  2. Coat the brisket generously.




  1. Buy the vacuum packed ones, its ok if they are fatty.
  2. Don’t buy the trimmed ones for this recipe.




  1. Use Hickory, Oak or Pecan.  I use a mix of Hickory and Oak only.
  2. Don’t use Mesquite as it is a very strong wood and makes the meat bitter if smoked in a smoker.  I find Mesquite is ok if you are cooking in an open fire pit, but not in a closed one.
  3. Try and remove as much of the bark as possible as this can add an acidic taste to the meat.
  4. If you use charcoal briquettes to start your fire make sure they are completely burned down and white before you add wood and close up the smoker.  




  1. Build your fire with wood and let it get good and hot with some coals on the bottom.  Close the dampers about 10 minutes or so before you add the brisket.  
  2. Add your brisket to the rack in the smoke box with the fat side up and smoke at about 250 to 300 degrees for about 4-6 hours.  This is the temp I use for my smoker yours may be different as the gauge is not completely accurate.  There are warm/cold spots in smokers.  You can tell if you are close because their will be a lot of warm moist smoke (White in color) coming out of the pipe.  If it is too hot there will be little smoke (Grey in color) and too much heat.
  3. After you have smoked it, the meat should be black on the outside and will have juice on the top.  There should not be any blood and the meat is cooked enough to eat at this point but will be slightly bitter.  
  4. Put the meat in a throw away turkey pan and add 1 stick of butter (not margarine) and 2 beers (I use dark beer as it adds better flavor).
  5. Cover the meat up with foil tightly and cook at low heat (less than 200 degrees) for a minimum of 8 hours.  I usually do about 24 hours for the whole process.
  6. The beer removes any bitter taste and it will keep the meat hydrated.


Additional Info:


  1. You can use a Webber Grill by building the fire on 1 side and putting the meat on the other.  Smoke the meat until the fire burns down (4-6 Hour) and then finish it in your oven starting with step 4 above.  Use a smaller cut of meat if you do this.  A Brinkman smoker is the same way.
  2. If you overcook the meat by accident it is ok add a little more butter and beer after a few hours as it will re-hydrate the meat.
  3. Try and buy the best cut of meat you can find and select the best wood possible.  These two items make a big difference.  
  4. Buy good beer and not light beer, it does make a difference.  Sam Adams Boston Lager or Shiner Bock are excellent choices.




  1. This recipe was originally created by my long-time friend Marc Erickson.  I have added my changes and this is the one I use.  


Good luck and have fun ?  Billy P.

References regarding Baptism by emersion

Baptism is not Salation.  It is simply our public declaration the we trust God above all else. 

Christ chose to be Baptised by John The Baptist.  Christ would have been ~ 30 years old.

The Baptism of Jesus(A)

13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John.(B) 14 But John tried to deter him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?”

15 Jesus replied, “Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness.” Then John consented.

16 As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened,(C) and he saw the Spirit of God(D) descending like a dove and alighting on him. 17 And a voice from heaven(E) said, “This is my Son,(F) whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”(G)


Phillip witnessed to a very rich man.  When the man believed in the Good News of Christ, he immediately asked to be Batised in water.

Philip and the Ethiopian Eunuch

26 Now (A)an angel of the Lord said to Philip, “Rise and go toward the south[a] to the road that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.” This is a desert place. 27 And he rose and went. And there was an (B)Ethiopian, a (C)eunuch, a court official of Candace, queen of the Ethiopians, (D)who was in charge of all her treasure. (E)He had come to Jerusalem to worship 28 and was returning, seated in his chariot, and he was reading the prophet Isaiah. 29 And the Spirit said to Philip, “Go over and join this chariot.” 30 So Philip ran to him and heard him reading Isaiah the prophet and asked, “Do you understand what you are reading?” 31 And he said, (F)“How can I, unless someone (G)guides me?” And (H)he invited Philip to come up and sit with him. 32 Now the passage of the Scripture that he was reading was this:

(I)“Like a sheep he was led to the slaughter
and like a lamb before its shearer is silent,
so he opens not his mouth.
33 In his (J)humiliation justice was denied him.
Who can describe his generation?
For his life is taken away from the earth.”

34 And the eunuch said to Philip, “About whom, I ask you, does the prophet say this, about himself or about someone else?” 35 Then Philip opened his mouth, and (K)beginning with this Scripture (L)he told him the good news about Jesus. 36 And as they were going along the road they came to some water, and the eunuch said, “See, here is water! (M)What prevents me from being baptized?”[b] 38 And he commanded the chariot to stop, and they both went down into the water, Philip and the eunuch, and he baptized him. 39 And when they came up out of the water, (N)the Spirit of the Lord (O)carried Philip away, and the eunuch saw him no more, and went on his way rejoicing. 40 But Philip found himself at Azotus, and as he passed through he preached the gospel to all the towns until he came to Caesarea.



An interesting counter point worth considering. Hebrews 9:21.

21 In the same way, he sprinkled with the blood both the tabernacle and everything used in its ceremonies.

This passage from Hebrews uses the “Sprinkled” terminology……
