  • Mix together all seasoning ingredients in small bowl or container
  • Rub all sides of brisket with the dry rub seasoning
  • Preheat smoker to 225 degrees according to manufacturer instructions
  • Place seasoned brisket fat side down and let cook until it reaches an internal temperature of around 160 degrees (mine took about 4 hours)
  • Wrap tightly in foil and add some water or 1/2 cup of beef broth and return to grill until the brisket reaches 205 degrees (about another 2-4 hours).
  • Remove and let rest for at least 30 minutes before slicing


If you are running short on time and can't watch the grill for the full time, after wrapping the brisket in foil you can place in slow cooker on low for remaining time instead.
