SMOKED PIMENTO CHEESE GRITS WITH BEER BRAISED BRISKET
I couldn't ask for a dish to turn out any better than this combination. Pimento Cheese and Grits are as southern as it gets. Combine them together and it is almost heaven on a spoon. Then we didn't stop there. We topped that with a little nugget of Brisket Goodness. We slow smoked out Award winning brisket for 9 hours, cubed it and braised it in Reformation Brewery Cadence for 2 hours. Unbelievable!!!
1 lb of grated sharp cheddar
1 cup of mayo
1/2 teaspoon of Lane's One Legged Chicken
1/2 teaspoon of Lane's SPF 53
10 oz. of fire roasted peppers diced
1 Jalapeno Seeded and Diced
Combine all ingredients and mix well. Place in refrigerator
1 and 1/2 cup milk
1 and 1/2 cup water
1 stick of unsalted butter
1 cup uncooked quick grits (or an grits you like. I really like Red Mule Grits)
Salt to taste
In a sauce pan over medium high heat. Add the Milk, water and Butter and bring to a boil. You will need to constantly stir this as the milk will burn and boil over. Once it is boiling whisk in the grits and add a liberal amount of salt (if you think you added enough add a little more). Turn heat down to low and cover. Stir occasionally until the grits are firmed up to the creaminess you desire. Place a cup of the Pimento cheese into the grits and mix well. PLace the grits in a cast iron pan.
Set the egg up for indirect cooking at 250 degrees with peach wood chunks. I usually smoke these for 15 to 20 minutes till they turn golden brown on top.
1 whole Packer Brisket withthe fat cap trimmed to about 1/8 in.
Lane's Brisket Rub
Set your egg up for indirect at 275 with as water pan on top of the Conveggtor. Place the Trimmed and Seasoned Brisket on fat side up. Cook the brisket till it reaches an internal of 195 . Pull off the egg, wrap in foil and let rest for at least an hour. I like to cool mine completely before cubing and braising .
Cube Brisket into 1 in. cubes. and place in a pan. Pour 2 cans of Reformation Brewery Cadence over the top and add a sick of butter. Place back on the egg indirect at 300 degrees uncovered for t 2 hours till the brisket breaks downs and the braising liquid has reduced and thickened.
Plaits on the plate and top with a hefty amount of Brisket. I like to garnish with maybe a little pickled red onion or just simple scallions.
