How to Prepare Your Montreal Smoked Meat


Serve It the Montreal Way



Wow! You have a brisket of the finest Montreal Smoked Meat on your cutting board.  Looks great!  But now - how to prepare it so you can chomp into the best sandwich around? Here's how!




How to Prepare your Dunn's Montreal smoked meat brisket


1: Remove brisket from vacuum package. Let brisket breathe for a few minutes.


2: Fill a large pot or Dutch oven 1/3 full with water; bring to a boil.


3: Set a rack or strainer inside pot but above the water. Set the whole or a portion of the brisket on the rack so that it rests above the water. No part of the brisket should be submerged in the water.


4: Cover and let steam for about 7 - 10 minutes per pound.


5: The brisket is fully steamed and ready for slicing when a fork can penetrate the brisket with no resistance [fork will slide in easily].


6: Remove the brisket from pot. Using a sharp long blade knife (8 - 12 inch blade recommended), cut off slices of Dunn's Famous Smoked Meat and create your own Original Dunn's Sandwich. It's important to always slice the meat across the grain for maximum tenderness. Slice as thinly as possible.


7. Traditionally your Montreal smoked meat is eaten on rye bread, with a mustard spread.
