Smoked Brisket Chili

Absolutely wonderful chili w/ a bit of sneaky heat and the great flavor of a smoked brisket.


3 pounds smoked brisket, chopped into small cubes
2 large canned chipotle peppers chopped finely
1 large can crushed tomatoes
2 small cans tomato paste
1 medium onion, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped garlic
2 bottles Harpoon IPA

2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup Frank's Hot Sauce
1 can black beans (optional)

1 teaspoon black
course-ground pepper
2 tablespoons cumin

1/2 teaspoon ginger
1 tablespoon salt
3 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon oregano
Olive oil


Combine all ingredients, except onion, garlic, spices and one beer, and simmer in a large Dutch oven for two hours.

In a separate pan, sauté onions and garlic in olive oil. Add spices, then mix with chili. Simmer 2-3 hours, adding beer as needed for thickness. Hint: The brown sugar will decrease the heat from the peppers, so add more if the chili is too spicy. Add more peppers if chili isn’t hot enough.

Notes:I will not take credit for this recipe. I found it online and made a few small changes to my liking. Not looking for credit... just sharing an amazing recipe.

I tried this with Boca veggie ground beef. I didn't have Harpoon IPA but substituted Miller Lite and Bud Select (which is all I had on hand). I had some Black and Tan and also some Stout but thought they might be too heavy. Also substituted Pinitos for the black beans.

This turned out to be pretty darn tasty. Next time I'll use either Ale or Stout.

FYI... I originally posted this message and actually tried using smoked turkey instead of brisket for an appetizer at Thanksgiving. It was HUGE hit. This chili recipe is fantastic.

Very good, the only thing I did was cut back on the Hot Sauce a little. Very very good!

I made this a couple of weeks ago. And I am happy to say I now have a new favorite chili recipe. Thank you
