The best homemade corned beef takes time, but the big-league flavor is well worth the wait. Devour it for dinner, then use leftovers in a breakfast hash & Reuben sandwiches.

Ingredients

  • 3 quarts cold water
  • (3) 12 oz bottles dark beer (lager), apple juice, or more water
  • 1-1/2 cups kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp curing salt per pound of meat
  • 5 tbsp Pickling Spice
  • 1 onion peeled and thickly sliced
  • 5 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
  • (1) 9-12 lbs 9-12 lbs whole packer brisket, outside fat trimmed to 1/4-inch Prime Rib Rub
  • 3 quarts cold water
  • (3) 12 oz bottles dark beer (lager), apple juice, or more water
  • 1-1/2 cups kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp curing salt per pound of meat
  • 5 tbsp Pickling Spice
  • 1 onion peeled and thickly sliced
  • 5 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
  • (1) 9-12 lbs 9-12 lbs whole packer brisket, outside fat trimmed to 1/4-inch Prime Rib Rub

Preparation

Brine: In a large stockpot or food-safe pail, combine water, beer, kosher salt, brown sugar, and curing salt. Stir with a long-handled spoon until the salt and sugar crystals have dissolved.

Add the pickling spice, onion, and garlic. Transfer the brine to the refrigerator.

Add the meat to the brine and weigh it down so the meat is completely submerged. Brine the brisket for 3 to 4 days, stirring once daily.

Remove the brisket from the brine, discarding brine. Rinse the brisket thoroughly under cold running water. Sprinkle with prime rib rub seasoning.

When ready to cook, start the Traeger on Smoke, lid open, until fire is established (about 5 minutes). Set Traeger to 250 degrees F and preheat for 10 to 15 minutes.

When grill is to temperature, place beef brisket directly on the grill grate and cook until meat reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees F (about 4-5 hours).

Wrap in a double layer of foil and add 1 ½ cup water to the meat. Place back on the Traeger until meat reaches an internal temperature of 204 degrees F (about 3-4 hours).

Let rest for 30 minutes. To serve, carve the meat across the grain into 1/4-inch slices and transfer to a platter or plates. Enjoy!
