This delicious brisket is coated in a sweet rub and slow-smoked to perfection. Of course, you can adjust the heat by using mild or hot chili powder.
- 1 beef brisket (about 8 to 10 pounds)
- For the Rub:
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup salt (coarse salt works best)
- 1/3 cup paprika
- 1/3 cup chili powder (hot or mild)
- 1/4 cup black pepper
Preheat smoker and add wood chips (follow your instruction manual).
Clean and dry the brisket. Apply brisket rub evenly. Place brisket in smoker for 8 to 10 hours. Keep the smoker temperature at about 220 F. To increase tenderness, take the brisket out of the smoker, wrap in aluminum foil and place in oven at 180 to 200 F for the last two hours. Typically after 8 to 10 hours a piece of meat will have absorbed as much smoke as it can and additional smoking may impart a bitter flavor.
Allow brisket to sit for 20 to 30 minutes before slicing it.
