Default Needed texas brisket sauce

I know I will probably not get that secret recipe that all you Texans have but i'm in need of a sauce to sever with my brisket I'm doing tomorrow. I'm just doing a simple salt and pepper rub on my smoker cooking at 275. I will try to save all the juices that come off while foiled but need a little flavor. Any recipes would be appreciated. Thank BBQ family

I think you are better off serving a 'jus' than a sauce. I like to take the drippings and add them to a pan, add enough water to bring me to 2 cups, add some beef base (or you could just use beef stock instead of the water and beef base). Adjust for salt and pepper if needed. Serve that way. I do not defat.

Otherwise, for a BBQ sauce, I mix the drippings into a prepared sauce (Sweet Baby Ray's...Bone Suckin' sauce etc), add a little vinegar to thin and sour the sauce up a bit. It ends up being a matter of whether it tastes good or not to drink a spoonful.

Yes, something like 'jus' a thin brown sauce but with a little flavor kick

I recently ran across this authentic Sam Houston BBQ sauce recipe. Just ignore the baked ribs part.

She also has a cookbook.

Can't beat the taste of a good brisket, no sauce needed.

Like Landarc said "you are better off serving 'a jus' than a sauce."

Here is my basic jus recipe. Minus the use of base.

Drippings including fat from brisket wrapping
cut offs from brisket (I use the ones from previous cooks, but, it can be that days cook)
enough water to make 2 cups total of liquid
1 tablespoon fish sauce or Worcestershire sauce

Bring all ingredients to boil for 5 minutes, mash cutoff to infuse into liquid. You are looking for a salty, smoky liquid here. Strain and reserve for step 2.

4 tablespoons of finely chopped onions
1 teaspoon of finely chopped garlic*
1 tablespoon of rub or equal parts chile powder, granulated garlic, black pepper

Saute onions and rub, add garlic to soften. Once onion and garlic are softened, add in liquid from prior step. Bring to simmer for 5 minutes to combine flavors.

* for garlic, I normally do not use a knife to mince garlic. I will smash the garlic slightly, add some kosher salt and then using a pastry cutter, cut the salt into the garlic, this gives a much better flavor.

** yes, I save my cutoffs from each cook, be it pork, ribs or brisket, when I need to make a jus or sauce, I start my base liquid by boiling these things to create a flavorful meat base. You can even reduce it by 3/4, and get a demi-glace like version of liquid smoke without the chemical flavor.

This is my moms simple texas dippin sauce.

Large pot to hold all ingredients with 4 tbs salted butter, sautée one large Vidalia onion chopped very fine.
4 cups Heinz ketchup
1/4 cup worchester
Juice from 1 squeezed lemon
1/4 cup molases
1/2 cup WHITE vinegar
1 tsp each: granulated garlic, season salt, chipotle powder, black pepper, cumin.
Bring to a simmer and serve.
Typical red Texas sauce is not meant for glazing, just dipping. It's ketchup(y), vinegary, chopped onions and savory. No sweet!
Good luck. This how we cook down here

A pic of the sauce she makes every year for the family reunion.

Just in Case there is any qualification required for certified texan!

Real Texas brisket needs no sauce, iMO. But, if you must have sauce, most Texas sauces are tomato based, and are a mix of sweet and hot -- not big on the vinegar.

Honestly, if I make BBQ for a crowd, and I know some of them are going to want sauce, I mix a store bought sauce, like SBR, with some honey and cayenne pepper, and simmer it to blend the heat and sweet. The sauce people always love it. I actually like it, too, on grilled chicken and other hot and fast cooked meats.

Aw, just serve them some Blue Bell. Ummmm, Vanilla for me, please.

BTW, it wasn't Jefferson who said that.

Now, back to the topic of "sauce for brisket," since this is, after all, Q-Talk.

I don't know if this is Texas, but I really like Raichlen's Red Eye Sauce.
