6 pounds beef brisket
1/2 cup salt
1 teaspoon salt and pepper
4 tablespoons fresh ground black pepper
2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons mixed pickling spices
3 teaspoons ground ginger

Preparation / Directions:

Mix the Salt, Saltpeter, spices and Sugar together and then rub into the Beef forcing it into the meat. Set into a pan, cover closely, and put into the refrigerator or a very cool place. Turn every few days for 3 weeks, then smoke over a barbecue pit or in a smokehouse -- over very low heat for 4 hours. It will keep well for some time in a cool place. To prepare, cover with cold Water and cook until tender. The length of cooking time depends on how long it was smoked. A large goose may be also treated this way to make a delicious treat.
