  • 6-8 pound beef brisket boneless-flat cut
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp sea salt
  • 2 tbsp granulated garlic
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp dried mustard
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • ¼ cup teriyaki sauce
  • **Wood Chips flavor of choice


  • In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, salt, granulated garlic, onion powder, chili powder, dried mustard, paprika and thyme and mizx until well combined.
  • Rub the spice blend over the entire surface of the brisket.
  • Top with minced garlic and spread around with a fork.
  • Place the wood chips in a bowl of water. You'll place them next to the meat while it cooks.
  • Out to the BBQ – Get your charcoal going in a chimney first.
  • Once the heat gets into the smoke zone (250-300 degrees) it’s time to add your brisket & the soaked wood chips to the smoker.
  • Cover & leave it! Now focus on temperature control. Try to keep your smoker at 230-275 degrees. Watch while it cooks for about 6 hours.
  • The ideal temperature of a properly smoked brisket is 195°F (keep in mind that the internal temp of the brisket can increase by 10 degrees even after it’s been removed from the grill.)
  • Stick a small fork in the brisket, and if it twists easily in the meat, it’s done.
