Mouthwatering and Flavorful Beef Brisket from “Texas BBQ Brothers” Author, Audrey Wick!

Delicious recipes straight from the kitchens of your favorite Tule authors.

Happy December, Tuligans!
There are a handful of delicious, original recipes in the back of my two BBQ Brothers books: On the Market and Off the Market and I thought a fun BBQ dish might be fun to share around the holidays.
In particular, this mouthwatering beef brisket might be something unique and an alternative to other meat dishes that may be expected around the holidays . . .

Beef Brisket

This isn’t quite as good as what The Hut makes using post oak wood, but it’s still a delicious version to serve at home. 

1 medium-sized brisket, market trimmed

3 T. Worcestershire sauce

3 T. soy sauce

1 T. liquid smoke

½ t. seasoned salt

½ t. onion salt

½ t. garlic salt

½ t. black pepper 

Put brisket on large piece of foil. Mix all other ingredients together. Pour over the brisket. Wrap tightly. Refrigerate for 24 hours. Then, bake at 250 degrees for approximately 5 hours. Slice and serve with The Hut’s barbeque sauce on the side. 

Want some rich and flavorful, homemade BBQ sauce to go with this brisket? Check out Audrey Wick’s BBQ-themed On the Market (Book 1 in her Texas BBQ Brothers series) for an original recipe! This and more are part of the back of the book, so happy reading…and happy eating!

Off the Market’s Recipe for Sweet Sun Tea

Written by Audrey Wick

One staple of Southern living is sweet tea. Summer is the perfect time for an ice-cold glass, and my characters in the Texas BBQ Brothers series know this. Tea makes a sideline appearance several times in the small town duet series ON THE MARKET and OFF THE MARKET. It’s served as a regular menu item in The Hut, the BBQ restaurant owned by my heroes, the Hutchinson brothers. Patrons can’t get enough of them—and their sweet tea!

But making sweet tea doesn’t require a complicated contraption or special ingredients. Here’s the perfect way to turn the heat of summer into a reason to make sun tea at home.


The Hut’s Recipe for Sweet Sun Tea

1)      Choose a pitcher or glass container.

2)      Fill with 2 quarts room temperature water.

3)      Dunk 2 family size tea bags of any variety black tea inside.

4)      Cover the container and set in a sunny location for 2-3 hours.

5)      Discard tea bags.

6)      Add 1/2 – 2/3 cup pure cane sugar. Stir until dissolved.

7)      Refrigerate until cool.

Note: Do NOT immediately add ice, as that will weaken the tea. Once the tea has cooled in the refrigerator, then ice can be used as you pour yourself a tall glass.

Have any lemon, lime, or mint leaves? Add some for a dash of extra flavor.

As the dog days of summer stretch on, stay cool! There’s still plenty of time to read, and plenty of time to enjoy a glass of sweet sun tea while you do!

Traveling to Texas with NEW Tule Author Audrey Wick

Travel is my biggest inspiration for writing. My favorite element of telling a story is setting, so the places I write about are largely places that are special to me. As a reader, I also love discovering fresh places through an author’s work. The journey to a new location is always fun, and I’m fortunate to be able to do that for readers in FINDING TRUE NORTH.
