Chopped Brisket Sandwich With House Made Pickles And Summer Corn Salad With Fresh Vegetables And Herbs
“This chopped smoked brisket is a great alternative to pulled pork in the summer. The flavor of the sandwich comes straight from the meat and the smoke – no sauce needed, just a little jus from the brisket. The sweetness here comes from the grilled corn salad and summer vegetable salad. I like to change up this recipe depending on whatever is available in the market,” says Charles Grund Jr., Corporate Chef and Pitmaster at Hill Country Hospitality.
