Cooking Instructions

Let’s face it, there’s some brisket recipes out there that have so many steps in the process, it can be intimidating for anyone that isn’t a BBQ pitmaster. Some call for you to wrap it in butcher paper and throw into a cooler to have it rest for a couple of hours before smoking it again! But if you’re looking for an easy smoked brisket recipe that will let you set it and forget it while you go do something else? Look no further than this simple 3 step recipe that delivers a delicious beefy meal .

  1. Turn your Pit Boss to smoke mode, let the fire catch and then set your grill to 225°F.
  2. While your grill is heating up, trim your brisket of excess fat (you’ll want to leave about ¼ of an inch of fat so the meat stays moist during the long cooking process) , and season with your favorite rub - whatever floats your boat! Place your brisket on the grates of the grill, fat side up. Let it smoke for about 8 - 10 hours, or until the internal temperature reaches 190°F.
  3. Let it rest in the cooler for up to an hour so the juices can sit.
  4. Slice against the grain and enjoy!
