Smoked Brisket with home made slaw and beans

I haven't used the smoker all season and was itching to.



Being non-American - the hardwood comes from a bag!



I saw a bit of rolled brisket in Tesco's. About 300% smaller than you should really cook on the smoker - but never mind...



These weber charcoal starters are the total business!



Coals in place, and water tray filled. All ready for a slow 3 hour cook.....



The 'slaw I adapted from a wonderful cookbook called Home, which is the cookbook from the restaurant of the same name in NYC. It specialises in home cooked American food - and jolly good it was too. I found out about it on the awesome Foods Of New York walking tour - which I've done about 5 times ! (Managed to get the cook book hidden on the bill - so expensed it....I should be a politician!)



Made up a baked bean recipe...


Started with bacon, onion and green pepper



Reduced some fresh toms



Sieved for more refinement !



After 3.5 hours in the smoker....Note the purple smoke tinge



Still nice and juicy and very smokey



All together now...
