There are a few things that are just so impressive when made from scratch, your friends will never stop talking about them. One is a DIY wedding cake. Another is the Momofuku bo ssäm And a third is Texas-style brisket. Virgil’s Real Barbecue in NYC cooks a Texas brisket that transports New Yorkers from Times Square to the Lone Star State. In the recently released Virgil’s Barbecue Road Trip Cookbook, Neal Corman walks us through replicating the iconic dish at home.
The secret to a delicious Texas brisket is in the rub. A rub is a mixture of spices that is rubbed into the meat before cooking. It infuses the brisket with flavor. Everyone has his or her own version of Texas brisket rub and each one can have a unique flavor. Make a big batch of it and store it in an air tight container in the pantry.
