    How do I make vegan brisket?


    My name is Fuzz. I reside in Portland, Oregon. I started smoking about seven years ago with a Weber kettle. I recently picked up a Yoder Loaded Wichita. I like to smoke USDA Prime whole packer briskets with post oak splits and am rather ambivalent about other smoked meats except smoked tri-tip, which I strongly dislike--the smoke/steak-texture combo reminds me of cheap bologna.

    I like to cook a lot of food but I am not terribly fond of hosting events at my house so I am considering opening a barbecue restaurant.

    ​Welcome to The Pit (fuzz)! Nice smoker there, the YLW, I run one too. No idea about a vegan brisket....is that even possible?

    Great job on your signature...you must've read your home work, if not it's here: homework assignment post for new members, it contains a few other how-tos and please-dos.

    Hope to hear & see more from you!


      Dear Jesus, please make this thread title go away.

      Of course living out there on the left coast, especially up in the corner, Vegan brisket would probably sell like hotcakes!

      Vegan hotcakes, that is.



        Welcome to the Pit fuzz


          (fuzz) I would suggest reading the tri tip article here: http://amazingribs.com/recipes/beef/...ip_steaks.html

          As the article says, you don't use smoke the tri tip. I have done a bunch of tri tips using the reverse sear technique. The Slow n Sear accessory is perfect for this cut. Until I get a SnS, I use the Smokenator at 225 to get the tri tip to 125 and then I blast it on high heat, turning often, until it gets to 130


            I don't think there is enough meat on a vegan to make a brisket out of em.


              Hey fuzz! Welcome.

                  Nice explanation, (fuzz)! And welcome.

                Welcome (fuzz)! Like your name.


                  FLBuckeye That is the recipe I used and I had it on the smoker even less time than recommended but it just did not do it for me. After reading that I anticipated reverse-sear tri-tip being my new favorite food, a mind-altering cross between brisket and steak. When I was done searing it looked great and it smelled great--in my mind I was already telling people how amazing it was and how it was my new favorite food. Then I took a bite and the sad trombone played.

                  That's OK, though, more room in my belly for brisket

                    Did you use all ashed over briquets? If you have unlit coals that ignite while cooking, you will get some unwanted smoke. Just an idea

                  The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                  The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                  The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                  The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                  The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                  Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
