Smoked Beef Brisket


I love the flavor of real barbecue – meat smoked slowly over real wood. My husband is the master of our smoker.

We decided to give some brisket a try. And, at the same time, he smoked some mushrooms, garlic, bologna chub and longaniza chorizo.






Now that brisket shrunk up a lot – I suggest you plan on about 1 pound per person! And by the way, that smoked bologna chub was incredible! But, I digress.

Here is how we made our really tasty, really smokey, beef brisket!

What you need:

  • 2 pounds beef brisket
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 2 Tablespoons regular chili powder
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon hot paprika
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic powder
  • ½ Tablespoon ground cumin
  • 2 Tablespoons dried parsley
  • 1 Tablespoon onion powder
  • ½ Tablespoon garlic salt
  • 1 Tablespoon dry mustard

How to Do it:

Mix all the spices together well in a bowl.


Cross cut the fat side of the roast, through the fat to the meat so the rub will permeate into the meat.

Completely cover the entire surface of the brisket with the spices and refrigerate for about 3 to 4 days.

Take the brisket from the refrigerator and shake off the excess spices (do not rub off). Place in smoker and cook according to the direction on your smoker. Time varies. We cooked ours for about 4 hours in the smoker and an additional 2 hours in the oven at 275 degrees.

Let set for about 5 minutes, then slice and enjoy. You can add barbeque sauce if you like and eat it on a sandwich or just on the plate with some sides.
