Can Brisket Drippings Make Gravy?

Absolutely! By using the drippings from your smoked or oven-roasted brisket, you can create a gravy that captures the delectable flavors of the meat. The marinade, rub, or brine that you used to flavor your brisket will infuse your gravy with a smoky, almost BBQ-like taste. It’s a fantastic way to make the most of every last bit of flavor.

Ingredients for Smoked Brisket Gravy

To make this mouthwatering gravy, you’ll need:

  • Brisket Drippings: Whether from a smoked or oven-roasted brisket, these drippings serve as the flavorful base for the gravy.
  • All-Purpose Flour: To achieve the perfect consistency and texture, all-purpose flour is ideal. However, if you’re gluten-free, you can substitute a certified gluten-free flour.
  • Spices: The gravy will absorb any flavors you added to the meat. For a delightful flavor, try using a brisket rub.
  • Reduced Sodium Vegetable Stock or Bouillon: Opt for low-sodium vegetable base to enhance the flavors without overpowering them. You can always add salt later if needed.
  • Salt & Pepper

How to Make Gravy from Brisket Drippings

Making gravy from brisket drippings is easier than you might think. Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Collect the cooked brisket from the oven or smoker and remove as much fat as possible from the drippings.
  2. Heat the brisket drippings in a saucepan over low heat until melted. Slowly whisk in the flour, one tablespoon at a time, until the gravy reaches a thick consistency.
  3. If the gravy needs liquid, add vegetable stock or broth, 1/4 cup at a time. Keep whisking to ensure a smooth texture, dissolving the flour completely before adding more.
  4. Once the gravy has reached a desirable texture, taste and adjust the seasonings according to your preference. Add salt, pepper, or even rosemary and thyme for an extra burst of flavor.
  5. Pour the tantalizing gravy over your favorite meats, mashed potatoes, or crispy potato wedges. Enjoy!
