Smoked Brisket

Serves 6 - 8

Cook Time: 6 - 8 hours (use internal temp as guide)

Planning a get-together with family or friends, but not sure what to serve? This Smoked Brisket recipe is the perfect answer! It's slowly smoked to ensure that the seasonings and flavors are absorbed throughout the cut of meat. Serves approximately 6 to 8 dinner guests, depending on guest appetite range.

Ingredients

  • 8 lb. brisket
  • Worcestershire sauce (to taste)
  • Yellow mustard (to taste)

Dry rub ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp. kosher salt
  • 2 tbsp. chili powder
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 2 tbsp. red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp. minced dried onion
  • 2 tbsp. paprika
  • 2 tbsp. black pepper

Mop ingredients:

  • 1 can beer
  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2-3 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp. red pepper flakes

Other supplies:

  • 2 large foil drip pans
  • 1-2 large pieces of wood, 3-in diameter/4-in long, of your choice for smoking the brisket (Oak is recommended.)
  • Heavy aluminum foil

Directions

Mix ingredients for dry rub together in a medium sized bowl. Set aside.

Remove brisket from refrigerator. Rub with yellow mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Coat with dry rub. Let brisket sit and come to room temperature with the rub applied.

While the brisket sits, mix your mop ingredients in a large foil drip pan and set aside.

Start your Vision Grill and bring it to 225-250°F. Throw in a chunk or two of wood of your choice for smoke and place brisket on grill. Place a foil drip pan under brisket to catch drippings from mop.

After the brisket has cooked for an hour, apply a mop every 45 minutes to an hour until the brisket has reached an internal temperature of 190 degrees. Remove from grill and double wrap in heavy aluminum foil. Wrap foil covered brisket in a towel, place in a cooler, and let rest for 60 – 90 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
