Smoked Brisket

Smoked Brisket

Smoking Method: For smoking brisket, we recommend using a low and slow approach. Smoking brisket at a low temperature allows you to bring out its rich flavors.

Time: 5-8 hours

Smoking brisket takes time, typically around 6-8 hours. However, the smoking time may vary depending on the thickness of the meat, so it's essential to monitor until the center reaches the appropriate temperature. We recommend using a meat thermometer.


  • Brisket (approximately 1 kg)
  • Smoking chips (Hickory or Oak recommended)
  • Dry rub for brisket (a mixture of salt, black pepper, paprika, and garlic powder)


  1. Preparing the Brisket:

    • Evenly coat the surface of the brisket with the dry rub. Let the seasoning meld with the meat, wrap it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
  2. Preparing the Smoker:

    • Soak the smoking chips in water and then light them in the smoker. Make sure to drain excess water. Wait until the smoke starts to rise.
  3. Smoking the Brisket:

    • Place the brisket on the smoker's grate and close the lid to begin smoking. Continue to supply smoke by adding smoking chips.

    • During smoking, adjust the temperature to remain stable. Keep smoking until the center of the brisket reaches 190°F (approximately 88°C).

  4. Resting and Cutting:

    • Once smoking is complete, allow the brisket to rest for 15-30 minutes to let the juices distribute evenly.

    • Slice the brisket thinly and serve it with your preferred sauce and side dishes.

Recommended Smoking Chips:


Hickory smoking chips impart a strong smokiness and deep flavor. They complement the robust texture of brisket well, making it ideal for enjoying a classic smoky flavor.


Oak smoking chips offer a moderate smokiness and balanced flavor. They pair nicely with many dishes and bring out a wonderful taste in brisket.
