Smoked Brisket Recipe
A mouthwatering smoked brisket recipe is one of the best parts of a backyard barbecue. Treat yourself to this tender, flavorful dish as a sandwich or served along side your favorite cookout sides.
- 1 8 lb brisket
- seasoning rub use your favorite
Rinse the brisket with cool water, and then pat dry with paper towels.
Using your hands, add plenty of your favorite rub style seasoning blend and literally rub it in all over, top bottom sides, etc. Make sure the outsides got a good even coating.
Lay the prepared brisket, fat side up, on an overly large sheet of peach butcher paper. Wrap it up and then fold ends over to close.
Smoke the brisket at 225° for 12 hours.
When done, carefully remove the wrapped brisket from the smoker (juice will be HOT), and transfer it to a waiting platter or pan. Let it rest for a full hour.
Carefully unwrap the brisket and transfer it to a clean cutting board.
Using an electric knife or very sharp blade, thinly slice the brisket and serve.
