    Leftover Brisket Shepherd's Pie

    Not a surprise, my wife and I couldn't finish that 12 pound brisket I cooked Saturday, even with the help of our one-year-old son. So this Shepherd's Pie is the first use of the leftovers (more to come).

    Started with a layer of brisket, a combo of point and flat, mixed with smoked onions and a little bacon...

    The bad news... I haven't actually eaten any yet. It got packed up to bring to work for lunch.
    The good news... Lunch is in about an hour, though I may not wait that long.

    Will report back on the results, but from the few pieces I "tested" from the bottom of the dish and the bits that I "tested" from each layer as I was adding it, it's going to be one awesome lunch.

          The last shepherd's pie I ate (in a restaurant) used sweets taters instead of regular potatoes. It's a good idea and worth a try!

                  Awesome idea. I’ve never had brisket leftovers (even when it’s just my wife and I...a couple friends always sneak over too), but I may plan for some just to try this. Thanks for the inspiration!

                        Leftover meal #2 - not nearly as impressive looking, but still delicious.

                        Bottom bun slathered with a smoked garlic spread. Close to this recipe but cooked at a higher temp and less time to try to roast the garlic and mellow the flavor a bit. Then a thin layer of smoked onions with bacon that were leftover from what went into the shepherd's pie, followed by a healthy portion of thick sliced brisket. Topped off with some of Meathead's Bright, Bold, and Quick Pickled Red Onions.

                        The verdict: One tasty sammich, though not spectacular. If I could do it again (which I can!), I would go heavier on the garlic spread. It came out really delicious but the garlic flavor definitely mellowed while smoking so it could have used more to hold up to the strong beef and pickled onion flavors.

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

                            the good one grill
                            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.

                            Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                            The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                            Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                            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 amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

                            Napoleon's NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
