Tonight, I made a brisket with carrots and potatoes. Carrots and potatoes were placed in the bottom of a cast iron dutch oven and sprinkled with salt, paprika, chipotle pepper, black pepper, cayenne pepper, thyme, garlic. Brisket was rubbed with the same combination mixed with a little brown sugar. Very heavy lid added to cook.
It was cooked at 200F for an hour. Since it didn’t seem to have cooked at all, I bumped the temp up to 250F and cooked for another hour — until the internal temp reached 205F.
