Pellet Grill Brisket

Smoked Brisket on Pellet Grill


Who says you can't get a smoke ring on a Pellet Grill Brisket? It just take time!

Might be one of the easiest recipes to recreate... a few simple seasonings, some butcher paper, and plenty of low and slow hours and you got a brisket to write home about!

    Smoked Brisket Recipe Ingredients

    • 1 whole packer brisket (16lbs)
    • 1/4 cup Killer Hogs Hot Rub
    • 1/8 cup Killer Hogs TX Brisket

      Smoked Brisket Recipe Directions

      1. Trim thick area of fat from brisket, remove thin edge and any silver skin from top of flat. Flip the brisket to fat side and take it down to 1/4”.
      2. Season the brisket with Hot Rub followed by TX Brisket Rub.
      3. Rest brisket for a few hours before placing on pit.
      4. Prepare pellet grill for low and slow smoking at 195 degrees using pecan pellets.
      5. Place brisket fat side down on pellet grill and smoke for 8 hours.
      6. Wrap brisket in butcher paper, insert probe thermometer into center of flat, and place back on smoker.
      7. Increase smoker temp to 250 degrees and continue cooking brisket until internal temperature reaches 200 degrees.
      8. Rest brisket in a dry cooler for 2 hours.
      9. Slice into 1/4” slices starting with flat. Rotate point and slice it into slices as well, removing the edges and slicing them into cubes for burnt ends.

      • Hey brother!
        Hope all is well, love your videos and seasonings!! I am about to cook a 16lb brisket for the first time. And I am curious, after the initial 8 hour smoke at 195, when wrapped and cranked the temp to 250. About how long did the brisket take to get to temp? I’m just trying to gauge what time I need to start and have it on the table for Christmas. Any insight is greatly appreciated!
