Let’s find out a bit more.

What is Beef Brisket?

Beef brisket is a cut of meat from the breast or lower chest of the cow. It’s known for its rich flavour and tender texture when cooked properly.

Historically, brisket has been a staple in BBQ culture, especially in Texas, where it’s revered as one of the ultimate meats to grill and savour. The brisket’s unique combination of muscle and fat makes it perfect for slow cooking, allowing the flavours to develop over time.

There are two main parts to a brisket: the flat cut and the point cut. The flat cut is leaner and more uniform in shape, making it ideal for slicing and adding to sandwiches (more on this later).

The point cut is fattier and more flavourful, making it the perfect star of the show.

Both cuts are essential in creating the best brisket possible, each offering a different texture and taste experience.

What Makes Beef Brisket So Special?

The magic of beef brisket lies in its flavour profile and texture.

When slow-cooked by a Big Easy chef, brisket becomes incredibly tender and juicy, with a rich, smoky flavour that’s hard to beat. One bite and you’ll never look back.

If you love American barbecue food (and if you’re familiar with Big Easy, we’re sure you do), it won’t take long to realise why this is such a revered and popular meat. It requires patience and skill to perfect, so if you’re not sure how to get it right, let us do the hard work for you.

All you have to do is tuck in!

Brisket is also incredibly versatile, lending itself to a variety of dishes beyond traditional BBQ. It can be sliced for sandwiches or paired with other meats and sides, which is why it finds a home in some of our sharing platters.

Its adaptability and depth of flavour make it a favourite among chefs and home cooks alike, and we’re sure you’ll love it too!

How Big Easy Makes Its Beef Brisket Taste So Good

At Big Easy, we believe that all great food starts with quality ingredients and proper preparation.

From our steaks to our lobsters, this is our ethos, and we always stick to this when preparing our beef brisket.

We source only the finest beef, ensuring that each cut meets our high standards.

We don’t use any meat, only the best.


Take a bite and you’ll find out as you are met with a mouthful of juicy flavours. Our brisket is dry rubbed Texas style, using a special blend of Louisiana spices that enhances the natural flavours throughout.

The cooking process is where the magic truly happens. Our briskets are slow-smoked for hours, allowing the smoke to penetrate the meat and create that signature BBQ flavour.

We use a combination of woods to achieve the perfect balance of smokiness and sweetness. The result is a brisket that’s tender, juicy, and packed with flavour. We’re passionate about serving the best brisket in London, and our attention to detail and commitment to quality is what sets us apart from the rest.

What’s the Best Way to Cook Brisket?

We’ve mentioned that it ain’t easy to cook brisket the right way. There are several methods, but the most popular and effective is smoking. Smoking brisket involves cooking it low and slow, allowing the meat to absorb the smoky flavours and become incredibly tender.

Here are some tips on getting it just right:

Tips for Cooking a Perfect Brisket

  1. Choosing the Right Cut: Opt for a whole brisket that includes both the flat and point cuts. This ensures a balance of lean and fatty meat, providing the best texture and flavour.
  2. Seasoning: Use a dry rub with a blend of spices like paprika, black pepper, garlic powder, cayenne, and salt to replicate the Big Easy mixture (although you can never beat the original). Let the brisket marinate overnight to allow the flavors to penetrate the meat.
  3. Cooking Temperature: Maintain a low cooking temperature and smoke the brisket for several hours. This slow cooking process breaks down the tissues, making the meat tender and allowing the smoke to really get into the meat.
  4. Monitoring: Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature. Once it hits the right temperature (around 90 degrees Celsius), you are good to go.
  5. Resting: Let the brisket rest for at least an hour after cooking. This allows the juices to spread throughout the meat and really soak in, ensuring each slice is moist and flavourful.
