    Injecting brisket

    When do I inject my brisket, before or after dry brining?

        Inject with a salty solution the night before. Don't dry brine, you'll add too much salt.

          What Jerod said, especially with Butcher's BBQ Brisket Injection, which is quite salty but delicious.

          That said, if I use my own low-sodium homemade beef broth, I dry brine overnight then inject not long before putting it in the smoker.

            Murdy , I use homemade beef broth to which I have added some of Butcher's BBQ phosphate, which is their secret moisture-retaining ingredient. It's in their Brisket and also in their Prime Brisket Injection/Marinades. But because those marinades both contain so much salt, I prefer to add the phosphate myself to my own beef broth. Here's the link to the phosphate alone: https://www.butcherbbq.com/product-page/bbq-phosphate

            Kathryn,
            How much phosphate do you add?
            Thanks for the insight

            LibertyJayHawk , I mix 1/4 cup Butcher's BBQ phosphate to 2 cups beef broth. I seldom use the whole 2 cups though. Usually a cup or a little more is plenty.

          fzxdoc Thanks, I'll check out that phosphate stuff. I'm supposed to reduce salt for medical reasons.
