Traeger brisket is a meaty marvel that's been around since the early days of Traeger. Create this flavorful hunk of beef for any family or neighborhood gathering, the aromas and taste is memorable, and a day of cooking outdoors with your favorite people, is priceless.

Ingredients

6 -8 lb. Brisket1
Your preferred rub, Traeger Beef Rub, Prime Rib Rub, or Salt & Pepperas needed

Preparation

For a 6 to 8 lb. brisket, plan for 8 to 12 hours of cook time, roughly 90 minutes per lb.. A remote probe thermometer is critical to use for brisket.

Coat brisket liberally with preferred rub, Traeger Beef Rub, Prime Rib Rub, or salt & pepper then, wrap in plastic wrap.

Let the wrapped brisket sit 12 to 24 hours in the refrigerator.

Allow plenty of time for cooking. When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Leave temperature set to Smoke, and pre-heat, lid closed (10-15 minutes).

Place brisket fat side up on the grill grate, insert thermometer probe and smoke for 4 hours.

After 4 hours turn grill up to 250F.

When internal meat temperature reaches 180F, remove brisket from the grill and wrap in foil - DO NOT remove thermometer probe.

Place foiled brisket back on grill and cook until internal temperature is 200-205F.

Note: not all briskets are "done" at the same temperature. Once you reach an internal temperature of 200- 205F, you should test the brisket using your temperature probe - you should be able to slide the probe into different parts of the brisket very easily, like butter.

Remove brisket and allow it to rest in the foil for at least 30 minutes.
