Classic Smoked Beef Brisket

This Smoked Beef Brisket Recipe will take time but the mouthwatering result is worth the wait.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 whole beef brisket (12 to 13 pounds)
  • 1/4 cup granulated garlic
  • 1/4 cup sweet paprika
  • 1/4 cup cracked black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat your Z Grills pellet smoker to 225°F.
  2. Use a sharp knife to trim excess fat from the brisket (You may substitute brisket flat or point for whole brisket).
  3. In a small bowl, combine garlic, paprika, pepper, and salt. Sprinkle and press evenly into beef Brisket on all sides and edges.
  4. Place brisket on the grill. Smoke the brisket for 3 hours.
  5. After 3 hours, remove the brisket from the grill and wrap it in foil.
  6. Continue smoking the brisket until the internal temperature reaches 195°F for brisket that slices easily. This may take about another 8 hours. For brisket that can be shredded or chunked, smoke the brisket when the internal temperature reaches 205°F.
