Beef Brisket in the Smoker

James decided to pull out his smoker.
He loves that thing.
He smoked his favorite, a beef brisket, & for the 1st time, he smoked 2 whole chickens.
That's now my favorite.

Oh my, that's a LOT of meat!
Carnivores ... eh, you could say that.

He likes to refer to himself as 'Famous James'

Look at that purty lil' chicken!

There are 5 of us, but I still knew we'd have plenty left-over.

We like having left-overs though & I love being creative with them.
The whole 'cook once, eat twice' method is super!
Only with this amount of meat, it was more like 'cook once, eat about 5 times!'

Here's how it all panned out:

1st meal {early lunch}:  smoked chicken, bread 'n butter & potato salad
2nd meal {late supper}: smoked beef brisket & baked beans
3rd meal {sent in lunchboxes the following day}:  shredded BBQ beef brisket sandwiches
4th meal {supper the next day}: shredded beef brisket tacos on corn tortillas
5th meal {lunch in lunchboxes the following day}:  tacos leftover from supper

You think they're tired of eating smoked brisket?
I think not.
James only smokes a brisket a few times a year, so they are more than happy to eat
on it a couple days.

Now, since the tacos were so divine ... & I made homemade pico de gallo for the 1st time
to serve alongside,  I'll share the recipe to both tomorrow.
Be sure & check back.
