Learn to Make The Machine Shed’s Beef Brisket!

Chef Brian Pomerenk, from the Machine Shed Urbandale, teaches us how to make Beef Brisket. Always tasty when ordered at the Shed, and now you can make it at home with our recipe! Impress your friends at your next BBQ or picnic!


Beef Brisket       10 lbs

Brown Sugar      2 quarts

BBQ Spice          2 quarts

Hickory Wood   2 Pieces

BBQ Sauce        2 Quarts

Mix together brown sugar and bbq spice so it is blended well. Place beef brisket on a cutting board and completely cover all of the brisket with the sugar and bbq spice mixture. In your smoker, add the hickory wood. The brisket will smoke for about 12-14 hours. Add extra wood as necessary. When brisket is completely smoked, remove from smoker and cut the deckle away from the flat side. The flat is the meatier side and the deckle will have more fat in it. The flat will be used for more entrée pieces while the deckle can be used for sandwiches. Slice brisket across the grain and as thin as possible. Top with bbq sauce when plating.

Mason Jar Lid Pies

There is nothing more Shed than pie, except pie made in a Mason Jar lid! We love this idea of making individual size desserts to share with family and friends.
