Start by pulling your prepared corned beef brisket out of the bag and placing it into a food safe bowl with water to soak for 4 hours. Half way through the soak, discard the water and refill it. This will help to pull out any excess salt from the brining/corning process.
When the corned beef is ready, lather it with some oil and thoroughly season it with your favorite beef seasoning. Preheat your Oklahoma Joe’s Bronco Smoker to 250F with some wood chips or wood chunks for added smoke flavor. Add the seasoned corned beef to the smoker, fat side up, to cook for 2.5 hours.
Next, pull off your corned beef and place it into a foil bin. Add to the bin some beef stock and Irish beer, then cover with a sheet of foil and place back on the smoker. Cook for another 2.5-3 hours until it reaches over 202F internal. Once it is done, pull it off, save the au jus from the foil bin and let it rest for 30 minutes.
Grabbing a sharp knife, slice the corned beef against the grain and chop it up. Add your cooked tater tops to a cast iron skillet on to your Oklahoma Joe’s Bronco Smoker at 375F. Cover your tater tots with shredded Irish cheese and let cook for 2-3 minutes to melt. Next, add your chopped corned beef to the skillet drizzled with some of the au jus from the smoker. Let cook for 1-2 more minutes, then pull off the smoker.
Garnish with chopped scallions, diced tomatoes and a dollop of sour cream. Enjoy!
