Smoked Beef Brisket Recipe

I used the flat portion of the beef brisket which is a cut of beef that takes a long time to break down. Its the less fatty portion of the whole brisket. The beef board has lots of information about this cut on their website HERE

Second, build your fire

I used a chimney starter to get my coals going. I prefer this to lighter fluid which can leave a bad taste in your food.  Build a two-zone fire with a pile of hot coals on one side leaving the other side of the grill empty. I used charcoal briquettes for a consistent, long burning fire.

Put a pan of water under the grate of the empty side of the grill. This adds moisture to keep the brisket from drying out during smoking

Third, season the brisket

Cut the brisket into two inch cube and season it with salt, pepper, granulated garlic, and onion powder.

Fourth, grill the brisket

Grill the brisket over the hot coals for just a few minutes per side to get a flavorful char on the outside.

Fifth, smoke the brisket

Move the brisket to the cooler side of the grill over the water pan. You want to smoke the brisket at about 250 -275 degrees for an hour and a half.

Sixth, braise the brisket

Mix up your sauce and add the brisket to the pan of sauce. Cover the pan and place it in the oven at 325 degrees for two and a half hours or until its tender.
