Chris Makes Grilled Brisket | From the Test Kitchen | Bon Appétit

  • Published: 02 May 2019
  • Join Chris Morocco in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as he makes grilled brisket with peanut salsa. Normally, you associate brisket with long, slow cooking—maybe on a winter afternoon—but we’re making a case for throwing it on the grill. Freezing the brisket makes it easier to slice it against the grain, which nullifies its naturally ropy texture and exposes more surface area to the flavorful marinade.
    Check out the recipe here:

        My baking instructor, a 4ft tall angry Chinese woman, once said during class "If I can smell you're nuts it's already too late". We all make T-shirts that had her quote on them.

                  Chris should have used a good serrated knife to cut the brisket since those make better cuts when you need to move back and forth.

                        What would be a good alternative cut of meat. My store often only has a brisket in 22 lb increments(i know i could ask for the butcher to cut it, Aint nobody got time for that).

                          ba media crew, your audio is so much softer than what youtube ad volume is at. so when ad plays. we will go deaf. or is it just me?

                            I mean maybe its just me but i worked cutting fish and we never cut frozen meat. Its really bad for your knife and you are more likely to hurt yourself with your newly dull knife. He maybe just firmed it but frozen is a no go.
                            Also n idea why you would want peanuts with beef and im a huge fan of not doing very sweet beef personally. Also you poisoned it with cilantro :p
                            Im gunna have to try marinading and grilling brisket.

                              Love how everyone in the BA fam is so knowledgeable and articulate. Carla casually flexing her biochemistry with protein denaturation, Chris of course with his impeccable vocabulary... very sophisticated and intelligent people excelling in their craft. A pleasure to watch them all

                                the audio was more quiet than usual on this video. i had to max out my speaker volume to hear chris and i couldn't hear most of the people that tried the food :(

                                  Wow great recipe! However, the amateur audio levels are, as usual, what they are. Fortunately the magazine has no audio!

                                      Chris obviously needs to be a contestant on BA's Chopped. Along with Rich, Carla, and Molly. Claire, Gabby, and Brad should be judges

                                      EDIT: I googled around and found it!!! Its a "DENVER BIG APRON" by Hadley & Bennet. It's like $95 but worth it, its beautiful.

                                        You don't have an electric slicer in your test kitchen? My grandmother had an electric meat slicer in her kitchen over 40 years ago. Great for slicing frozen meat in very thin slices.

                                                    As a brisket purist and having done so many of them either as BBQ brisket or pastrami, it's hard for me to enjoy recipes outside of that but this looked fun and different. Chris needs more air time.

                                                                                        Chris is the chef version of Sheldon from BBT. 2 me anyways.

His humour is slaying yet sophisticated, he shines with intelligence and precision but still messes up from time to time, he knows everything about food, flavors and cooking, he is cute without intending to and he seems like a really good friend and colleague - i will never forget how he stood by claires side through the starburst disaster 😂 and his last name is just awesome 👌
