If you're on the market for the perfect weekend grill recipe for your Gravity 980, this recipe should be at the top of your list. Char-Griller Ambassadors @PittBoysBBQ have you set for the perfect all-day smoke with this classic brisket recipe.


  • Trim your brisket, so everything is even and uniform
  • Leave ¼ inch of fat on the flat muscle
  • Inject the brisket if you wish, we did not
  • Season the brisket with Char-Griller’s Steak Rub
  • Fire up the Gravity 980 Smoker and set it to 225*F
  • Smoke for 2-3 hours before spritzing
  • We used beef broth to spritz every hour after the 3rd hour
  • Once 165*F internal is reached wrap the brisket in butcher paper and add some smoked beef tallow
  • Pro Tip - Save your brisket trimmings and smoke them in a foil pan alongside your brisket. This will render down into beef tallow AKA liquid gold
  • Smoke while wrapped until an internal temp of 205*F is reached
  • More important, the brisket needs to be able to probe tender
  • Let the brisket rest in a cooler for at least 2 hours and go even longer if you can!
  • Slice against the grain and enjoy!
