Brisket Crescent Rolls

I smoked a brisket on a Tuesday and we had a block party to attend the next day.  The block party was a pot luck dinner, where everyone brings some type of food. I thought it would be great to include my leftover brisket in some way other than just setting out a big platter of sliced up brisket (even though that would have been great too).  Recently a friend of mine sparked the great idea of using a crescent roll to place grilled chicken inside, so I decided why not use brisket?

I used my Big Green Egg to bake the rolls and thought they turned out really great as an appetizer.  In preparation, you’ll want to setup the grill for an indirect cook with your Place Setter and include the Pizza Stone for Big Green Egg Grill.

Brisket Crescent Rolls
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Cuisine: Appetizer
Serves: 6-8
  • 2 Cups Chopped Brisket
  • 2 Cans of Crescent Rolls
  • 2 Tbsp Corn Meal
  • 1 Tbsp Salt Lick Rub
  1. Light up the grill and stabilize your heat around 350-375°F. (One quick word of advice, my egg was still loaded up with pecan wood chunks, from the previous day smoking of brisket. I personally like the smoky taste, but you might want to remove the wood chunks, because the dough will really soak up the smoke flavor and almost overshadow the taste of your brisket).
  2. Be sure and keep the pizza stone on the egg, in order to pre-heat the stone.
  3. While your grill is rising up to temp, begin by rolling out the crescent rolls on wax paper. I prefer to add a little corn meal to the wax paper, so they are easier to remove.
  4. Take a pinch of smoked brisket and place it on the unrolled dough.
  5. Sprinkle Salt Lick Rub over the top of rolls, prior to roling up the dough.
  6. Roll up the dough over the brisket.
  7. Place the rolls on your pizza stone (be sure to sprinkle corn meal on the stone before placing the rolls).
  8. Shut the grill and let it cook for 10-12 minutes.
  9. Remove and serve with your favorite BBQ sauce.

Hard to find seasoning, but well worth buying online if unable to find locally: Salt Lick Dry Rub
