Vegetarians avert your eyes. Have your children leave the room, you don’t want them to see this. For you it won’t be pretty. However, for those of us who are dedicated omnivores (or in Dr. Biggles case, card carrying carnivores), it’s a dream on a bun, and I had to share it with the world at large.
Please excuse the fact that this really isn’t a recipe. It’s more of a field assembly guide for the ultimate in meat based sandwiches. There will be no fluff, no cheese, no greens or sprouts. Only bell peppers (or jalapeños, if you’re so inclined) are worthy of this carnivorous delight.
This sandwich was three days in the making. Was it worth it? I think so. Hopefully you will as well, but the only way you’ll ever know is if you try it for yourself.

What I would have done differently had I thought of it at the time:
Personally, not a darned thing! It seems however that my wife wasn’t fond of the bacon, so feel free to leave that bit off if you think it’s necessary. As for me. I’ll spend three days making this bad boy again.
Of course, I’ll be pre-slicing and freezing some brisket just for these sandwiches, too!
For this brisket it really doesn’t matter. It’s still melt-in-your mouth tender. But usually I would slice against the grain, yes. To be honest, I wasn’t paying attention!
Nope. just about 250 degrees for about 11 1/2 hours. I like mine a little on the medium-well side when it’s done. This is of course, a personal preference. For smoke, I simply add a little more wood than I would if I was going for a longer rest in the smoker
Bacon and brisket sounds like meat nirvana.
It looks like you sliced the brisket with the grain instead of against. Is that your preference?
Still, you’ve got a beautiful smoke ring on it. Was that 200* for 24 hrs?
That hunk of meat looks really yummy, Jerry. Three days? I know you said it was worth it, but my attention span is lousy. I’m getting ready to start a recipe with parts that I can finish until tomorrow and I’m already losing interest. Glad I stopped by to see that sandwich. It’s amazing! Love messy sandwiches!
Some days I feel sorry for vegetarians, but on days like these I’m just glad there’s more meat for the rest of us… That looks awesome!
Wow! that is BIG! and it looks absolutely perfect!
To be honest, it’s just a leftover brisket sandwich. I doubt I’ll often see the need to buy $30.00 worth of brisket and smoke it for 11 hours just so that I can have a sandwich in three days. (Of course, if there’s a big event coming, I just might!)
I’m with you, girl! Save the world from global warming, eat a cow!
It is pretty large, but you know what they say… Everything’s bigger in Texas.
Well, you’re not too far off. We could schedule something, I suppose :D
I think that’s the most eloquent comment so far :D
This looks great.
I’ve never cooked a brisket, this may give me the push to give it a try.
I’m with Brilynn too… I don’t think I could be a vegetarian if I tried- especially with yummy recipes like this one floating around! We are proud to have it in this week’s Roundup. Thanks, Jerry.
