SeaWorld in Orlando and its sister park, Busch Gardens in Tampa, are hosting Bands, Brew and BBQ now through the weekend of March 5th. Each Saturday, SeaWorld hosts a musical act and offers a wide array of BBQ and other tasty dishes from vendors like Smokey Bones, Four Rivers Smokehouse and Texas Cattle Company beef brisket in oven plenty of beer. Your best bet is the $20 tasting card, which lets you choose 12 specialty brews to sample from the beer garden. The portions are supposed to be three ounces; they filled up my cup to the rim every time, so my husband and I easily shared our tastings.
bbq beef brisket slowly smoked over low temperature is the signature product of Texas barbecue. All decent barbecued brisket will sport pink smoke rings around the exterior; at its best, the meat will be moist and deeply flavorful, the consummate marriage of beef and smoke. No sauce will be necessary. Or, utensils for that matter.
On our way to the food and beer I tried my hand at the goblet pitch, which is my favorite game, and scored a giant, sparkly Shamu, so he accompanied us for the day. First off, we tucked into some gator nuggets and bbq brisket with mushrooms, then got a BBQ plate with baked beans and a biscuit. The food items start at around $6.99 to $8.99 and go up to around $12.99, and you get a full meal for the price. I wished they had sample portions because I would have liked to try more of the different offerings, but alas we were more than full after the beef, gator and BBQ.
Mix equal parts of barbecue sauce and beef broth. I like to make enough so that the slow cooker bbq brisket is at least half submerged. Pour this mixture into your baking dish.
