Default Left over brisket in chili

Last night my wife mentioned that she would like to make a pot of chili. I mentioned that I was going to smoke a couple of briskets this weekend and she could use the leftovers in her chili. She laughed and said that would not work. I looked at her and asked why? Have any of you used it in chili? I think the smokiness would be great.

Well, yeah. Your wife must think only ground beef goes in chili. Many moons ago at bash events Phil would start the chili with maybe 5# of smoked chuck. Then as the weekend progressed, leftover brisket, pork, sausage, you get the picture?, would get thrown in. By Sunday that was some righteous chili. Probably cooled and reheated 3-4 times as we'd always forget it sitting in the verticle chamber of the Klose BYC!! Good times!

I's fantastic in chili. I just do a rough chop so it's not so chunky so it's easier for the kids to eat it.

Once you go brisket, you'll never go back! Let it slow simmer for extra beefy, smoky stock, mmm baby; makin' a big batch next week for my race weekend crowd.

As the winter weather slowly starts to creep in, I always make sure I have some brisket flat and or point in the freezer to make brisket chili. It is a taste treat that can't be beat. Always enough for several big pots because it is so darn good.

I personally think it overpowers everything with smoke. To each his own.

Use brisket leftovers for chili?

I will cook briskets for the sole purpose of making chili!

It just doesn't get any better.

That reminds me, I have 2 1-gallon ziplocs of brisket in the freezer that I need to defrost for chili next weekend. Thanks.
