Not sure about you, but I am a lover of all things BBQ and I am ALSO a lover of chili! What can I say, I love pretty food just as much as I love the hearty man food! Recently, we made some bad-ass beef brisket with some seriously DELICIOUS rub I found at Bass Pro Shops and had about half a brisket left over so instead of making sandwiches the next day, we opted for something a little tastier – CHILI!

I’ve gotta say that this had a great smokey flavor that the meat added to it, since obviously it was smoked for 10 hours the day before and packed it with some serious flavor from the rub that we used.

This is a Two Part Recipe.

Part I


  • 15 lb. Beef Brisket
  • 1/4 cup KC Butt Rub
  • 1 tsp. Cumin

Bring meat to room temperature. Rinse and pat dry the brisket. sprinkle and press in the rub and let it sit for about 15 minutes.

Place meat in 200 degree smoker for 10 hours.

Once the meat is cooked, it will have a dark crust and be oh so damn delicious!
