View Full Version : Leftover Brisket Chili

09-24-2016, 09:53 PM
We had a family reunion over Labor Day weekend. I smoked some briskets for the party, and due to the abundance of food at the event I had one brisket left over. I vacuum sealed it and put it in the freezer. This evening I dropped the bagged brisket in hot water and warmed it up, cubed it and made a chili. I normally like my chili with beans and big chunks of bell pepper and onion, but this time I decided to do more of a Texas style chili. It came out quite good, and yes the spoon is standing up in it on its own.

Looks good.

As soon as the temps drop some it's chili making season.

Thawed out my brisket leftovers from Labor Day yesterday as well! We're making the MoFo recipe again which we really enjoyed last year.
Cooler weather, Broncos football and brisket chili.... life is good!

Since I haven't made many "Texas" style Chilies, I looked over recipes from here http://www.chilicookoff.com/Recipe/Recipe_WCCC_Recipes.asp?Cat=1 and made kind of an amalgam of a few of them along with some of my own additions. The main thing I picked up from most of those recipes is using a variety of different types of chili powder added ad varying times throughout the cook.
