Here we are at the last day of #BBQWeek and boy has it  been fun! I love barbecue and this event has been the best enabler to get outside and smoke up the whole neighborhood! Special thanks to Ellen Folkman and Christie Campbell for being our gracious hosts, working hard to put this BBQ-Palooza together!

Let’s recap the recipes I have shared thus far this week:

Monday I posted Tangerine Hatch Chile Honey Chicken Kebabs featuring Not Ketchup:

Tuesday I posted Grilled Vegetable Sandwich with Tomato Bacon Jam featuring Michigan Asparagus:

Wednesday I posted Texas Style Smoked Beef Ribs featuring Adams Seasoning  in the rub:

And yesterday I shared my recipe for Grilled Buffalo Pork “Wings” (aka Hog Wings):

Which brings us up to today and the sharing of Brisket Baked Beans, a classic cookout side  dish. It uses smoked brisket that you have leftover, or you might purchase some as I have seen it in stores. After smoking a huge brisket, I often have some leftover I can freeze and I do so, not just for making yummy sandwiches later, but for tucking  in as a smoked meat flavoring, as you might see done in barbecue restaurants.

I don’t have the brisket posted,  as when I  made it I wasn’t taking photos, but I do have some brisket burnt ends coming up on Tuesday when I post my final burger recipe for #BurgerMonth, and the first half of the brisket in that one pretty much sums it up, although the prep for burnt ends goes beyond simple smoked brisket. You can read up on that when I post it.

Here is a picture of a point end brisket with bbq rub, getting ready to be smoked:

And here it is some hours later, magically transformed into delicious burnt ends:

See how  nice and dark  the bark got? That is pure joy.

Have you followed @palatablepastime on Instagram? I post lots of fun photos and foods not just from the blog, like these brisket previews and other things I may not have posted yet.

So which one is your favorite from BBQ Week? I bet it’s the giveaway,  so let’s not waste any more time before I tell you about it and get you entered for a chance to win prizes! It’s sort of like having dessert before dinner, but nothing wrong with that, right?
