Smoked Brisket

Prep Time: 20 Min | Cook Time: 10 Hrs


  • 1
    10 ½ lb. beef brisket
  • 2
    ½ C. paprika
  • 3
    ¼ C. packed light brown sugar
  • 4
    3 Tbsp. salt
  • 5
    3 Tbsp. coarse black pepper
  • 6
    3 Tbsp. Chili powder
  • 7
    Apple juice
  • 8


1. Using a sharp knife, trim the fat from the brisket leaving an even, thin layer on the top.

2. In a medium bowl, combine paprika, light brown sugar, Chili powder, salt and pepper and mix well to make rub seasoning. Using your hands, or a shaker, generously apply rub all over.

3. Wrap the brisket in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 12 hours.

4. When setting up the grill, add wood chips/chunks to charcoal and add Smokin’ Stone with an aluminum pan on top. Pour apple juice and water into pan, about halfway full. Place a temperature probe at grate level and heat grill to 220°F.

5. Place brisket on grates, fat side up, and allow to smoke for 5 hours. After 5 hours, wrap brisket in butcher paper and return to grill at 220°F. Brisket is done when internal temperature reaches 195°F. Allow brisket to rest for 1 hour.

Slice, serve and enjoy!
