Slow Smoked Brisket Blog

If there are two things that Texans know, it’s that Schlitterbahn is the Hottest, Coolest time in Texas AND good barbecue.

At Schlitterbahn, we pride ourselves on serving mouthwatering, slow slow-smoked brisket, daily to our guests. But what goes into our brisket?  Hop on the BBQ train as we slow smoke our way into flavor town!

First, we source our beef from USDA certified providers all around the country.

Next, we trim the brisket to ensure only the best makes it to your plate.

Once we’ve trimmed our brisket, we season it before slow-smoking to perfection for 10 hours at 225 degrees Fahrenheit.

We then let is slowly cool down for an hour to let the meat set to preserve the tenderness and juiciness.

Culminating in a final product that looks something like this:
