Smoker brisket

In an earlier episode on this blog, I wrote that I purchased a Z Grill smoker. I have used it for simple things, but this was my first large cook. To me, the most challenging cut of meat is a brisket. Temperature control is the most important on this cut, and room for error is slight. So I went online for some advice and consulted the BBQ master Myron Mixon; I got the basics of his rub which I changed – after all, it’s me. So we had a delicious brisket for 15, but there were only 5 of us. We have left overs! I hope you like it.

7 pound beef brisket

1 quart beef broth


3 tablespoons black pepper
1 tablespoon salt
3 tablespoons garlic powder
3 tablespoons hot paprika
2 tablespoons onion powder
2 tablespoons chili powder

Mix 1/3 of rub mixture with beef broth and inject beef every two inches at least 6 hours before cooking and keep refrigerated until one hour before cooking. Save leftover injection liquid.

Set smoker to 300 degrees.

Coat brisket with spice rub.

Cook with smoke for 2 1/2 hours.

In a double-lined foil pan, add injection liquid, Add brisket and cover tightly with foil.

Cook for 4 hours or internal brisket temperature is 205.

Let brisket rest for 30 minutes.

Slice in 1/4 inch slices.
