Master the Art of Smoked Brisket with
The Ribeye Club's Ultimate Recipe
There's nothing quite like the aroma of smoked brisket wafting through the air. It's the promise of something delicious, something that's been cooked with care and patience. At Ribeye Club, we understand that smoking brisket is more than a cooking method; it's a tradition steeped in barbecue lore. Follow our recipe to create a smoked USDA brisket that's tender, flavorful, and absolutely unforgettable.
•1 whole USDA-certified brisket (5-6 Kg)
•3 tablespoons kosher salt
•3 tablespoons freshly ground black pepper
•2 tablespoons smoked paprika
•1 tablespoon garlic powder
•1 tablespoon onion powder
•2 teaspoons cayenne pepper (optional for heat)
•Your choice of wood chips (hickory or oak are recommended)
The Ribeye Club's Smoked Brisket Method
1. Prep the Brisket
Remove your brisket from the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature, about one hour. Trim excess fat, leaving a quarter-inch layer to keep the meat moist during the long smoking process.
2. Season Generously
Combine the kosher salt, black pepper, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and cayenne pepper. Apply the rub evenly over the brisket, massaging it into every nook and cranny.
3. Fire Up the Smoker
Preheat your smoker to 225°F (107°C). This low and slow approach is key to a tender, fall-apart brisket.
4. Smoke to Perfection
Place the brisket in the smoker, fat side up, and cook until it reaches an internal temperature of 195-205°F (90-96°C). This could take anywhere from 10-12 hours depending on the size of your brisket.
5. Wrap It Up
If the brisket's surface is getting too dark, wrap it in butcher paper or aluminum foil during the latter half of the smoking process to protect it.
6. Rest Before You Feast
Once the brisket is done, let it rest for at least one hour before slicing. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat.
7. Serve and Savor
Slice against the grain and serve your smoked masterpiece with your favorite sides.
