Instructions

  1. 01

    Trim fat from the separated pieces top ¼ inch or less. Slather meat with spicy brown mustard. 

  2. 02

    Rub meat generously with the dry rub. Wrap and let rest for 8 to 12 hours.

  3. 03

    Set you Masterbuilt smoker to 230°F. Foil the water tray to make clean up easier. 

  4. 04

    Add a mixture of hot water, beer and apple juice to the bath.

  5. 05

    Keep adding small amounts of wood (oak or hickory work best with this cook) at a time until the meat hits an internal temperature of 140°F.

  6. 07

    Smoke with your favorite woods. Oak and hickory work fantastic with this recipe.

  7. 08

    After hour 2 of the smoke, start spritzing the meat with apple juice every two hours, until the meat hits 165°F. 

  8. 09

    Foil the meat with one last spritz of apple juice.

  9. 9

    Continue to cook until the internal temperature gets to 195°F.

  10. 10

    Average brisket time is 13 -15 hours with a few going longer. This is only an estimate because every brisket is different.

  11. 11

    Remove from your Masterbuilt smoker, wrap in towels and rest in an insulated container for a minimum of 30 minutes.

  12. 12

    Pro Tip: Cooking by temperature is the only way to cook brisket properly.

  13. 13

    Two hours is best. Slice and enjoy!

Master it.
