Smoke a brisket in a smoker with this easy, step-by-step Texas-Style Smoked Brisket recipe for incredible, melt-in-your-mouth flavor!



Step 1

While brisket is cold, trim excess fat, leaving about 1/4-inch fat cover. Give special attention to removing hard fat on the side, the underside and the area between point and flat.

Step 2

Season brisket evenly with salt and pepper.

Step 3

Set up smoker to 225°F. (We use hickory and apple wood). Cook 6 to 8 hours to achieve 165-170°F internal temperature.

Step 4

Wrap brisket with foil or peach barbecue paper. Continue cooking in smoker or in oven set to 225°F, until brisket reaches 195°F internal temperature.

Step 5

Remove from smoker or oven, open foil slightly to allow steam to vent. Rest for at least 2 hours in a portable cooler or on the counter.

Step 6

To serve, separate the flat muscle from the point with a horizontal cut between the two. Slice thinly against the grain to serve.
