Selecting The Beef Brisket Meat

  • For beef brisket, do NOT chose a first cut or top of the rib. There is no need for this.
  • I normally look for second cut brisket. If all they have are lean cuts of meat, talk to the butcher at your meat counter

Preparing The Beef Brisket

  • Now cover the meat with my BBQ Rub and leave it in the refrigerator for 24 hours.
  • Make sure to get both sides of the meat covered with the rub, use some olive oil if necessary.

Getting the grill ready and putting the brisket on the grill

  • Turn on your grill. If like lots of people you have a 3 burner gas grill, turn on only the front burner and let the grill warm up.
  • If you can cook with wood chips, add them before you turn on the grill.
  • Place the meat on the the grill AWAY from the flame.
  • Now close the grill and go away for 1 hour then come back and check on the cooking.
  • After about 2hrs, put the meat in an tin pan. Cover the pan so the meat doesn’t go dry.
  • Some people prefer to double wrap the meat in tin foil. (Double wrap to prevent any tearing).
  • Leave the meat on the grill a total of six hours.

The Beef Brisket is Almost Ready

  • Take the meat off the grill and upwrap. Coat the beef brisket meat with my BBQ sauce.
  • Wrap the meat up again and let it sit for one hour.
  • You want to take the meat off the oven grill at 180 degrees.
  • Thinly slice the beef brisket and serve up with your sides.
