Nutrition facts: 200 calories 20 grams fat

Ingredients

  • 1 12-14 pound whole brisket, trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons fresh ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder

Instructions

  1. Preheat the Traeger Grill to 225°F.
  2. Generously season the brisket with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Place the brisket directly on the grill grates and close the lid. Smoke until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (roughly 5-7 hours).
  3. Roll out a large piece of butcher paper (or heavy-duty foil). Place the brisket in the center of the paper, roll the edge up and fold down to create a leak-proof seal. Return the brisket to the smoker, place it seam-side down and allow the weight of the brisket to keep the fold closed.
  4. Continue smoking at 225°F until the internal temperature reaches 204°F (roughly 3-5 hours).
  5. Remove the brisket from the smoker and place on a large cutting board to rest for 30-60 minutes.
  6. Cut the brisket abasing the grain. Serve as is or with your favorite Traeger Grills BBQ sauce.

Notes

If you're working with a smaller brisket, simply decrease the amount of seasoning. The cook times will only vary slightly but on average it should take around 11-13 hours to reach the finish temperature even if you're working with a 6-pound brisket.

How does the brisket come out? Tender? Juicy? Dry?

Coleman, that really depends on the type of brisket you buy. If you buy a fatty brisket it will be more juicy and tender than a lean brisket. Fatty brisket is the only way to go!!

Sammie-
Just spices and not any ‘mop sauce’ like I see I’m so many recipes? This will be my first time smoking a brisket!

Thanks,
Marcie
