Ah brisket. A tough, unforgiving piece of beef that is difficult to cook properly. Luckily, there is a product on the market to help brisket cookers from the novice backyard chef to the expert pitmaster. Kosmos Reserve Blend Brisket Injection.
Packaging: Very classy pouch style container. Kosmo’s signature flaming Q is offset by the glossy black background.
Smell: Strong beef scent with a background of salt. If this tastes like it smells, it’s going to be fantastic!
Raw Taste: Intense flavor. Beef is again predominant. Let’s mix some up and give it a taste.
Mixed Flavor: I mixed it per the instructions on the package…3/4 cup Kosmos to 2 1/2 cups liquid (I used 1 cup apple juice and 1 1/2 cup water). The mixed flavor is phenomenal.
Let’s inject a brisket. I place a trimmed packer into a large zip-top bag, filled my injector with Kosmos and went to work. Forming a grid, every inch got some good, beefy injection.
The rest of the liquid was poured into the bag along with the brisket. Don’t waste a drop!
After a beefy bath, the whole brisket was coated with Kosmos Cow Cover. But that is story for another time… :-)
The picture is a little hard to see, but these slices are moist, tender and beefy. Good enough for 6th place.
Final Verdict: Kosmos injections and soaks are well known on the competition bbq circuit. After using this product just this once, I can see why. Kosmos Reserve Blend Beef Injection helped turn a tough piece of beef into a succulent, tender, full-flavored slice of heaven. This is a product I am adding to my competition bbq arsenal on a permanent basis right now…it’s that good. GREAT product Kosmos!! Go out and get yourself some today.
