How to make it

  • No need to trim Brisket at all
  • Rub down Brisket good with a generous amount of Salt and Pepper
  • Combine; 1 tbls. Paprika, 2 tbls. Garlic powder, 2 tbls. Onion Powder, 1 teas. Cumin, 1/2 teasp. Cayenne pepper , these are approx. amounts, I just sprinkle some of each on and rub it in good.( using a premixed rub is fine as well if you have a favorite, mine changes as to what I have on hand)
  • Set up your smoker according to manuf. directions,
  • In the water pan I add Liquid smoke and alittle Soy sauce to a pitcher of water and add to the water pan as needed thru-out the cooking.
  • Place Brisket in smoker on a doubled piece of foil, I start my Brisket fat side up and turn it over after about 3 hours
  • Smoke for approx. 8 hours keeping it at 220-250 adding wood chips as needed every hour or so.
  • Remove from smoker wrap in foil and let sit awhile before slicing( and remember to slice across the grain)
  • Serve with your favorite BBQ sauce

    Longing for that Country Cowboy Cooking that I had at the Hard 8 BBQ in Jacksburrro,Tx,think this might come close,their brisket,was just that,simple and good.

    Kind Regards

    This sounds great.Have you ever tried apple or cherry wood? Both give a bit of a sweet smokey flavor.

    You came through with this terrific brisket recipe just in time for the 4th! Think I'll add your smoked baked beans, some bbq coleslaw - maybe blueberry cobbler for dessert. I feel a plan coming on!
