Hardwood Hickory

A darker take on brisket. Smoked low ‘n slow over hickory, this cut is rubbed down with Traeger Coffee Rub and injected with a beef broth and coffee mixture for an extra punch of flavor.


1 (15 LB) beef brisket

1/4 cup Traeger Coffee rub, divided


4 tbsp salt


When ready to cook, set the Traeger to 225℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.

Trim brisket of all excess fat.

To make the Beef Broth Injection: Combine 2 Tbsp Traeger Coffee Rub, beef broth and 2 Tbsp salt in a small bowl stirring until the salt is dissolved.

Inject the brisket by inserting the needle parallel to the grain about 1 inch apart in a checker pattern over the entire brisket. Back it out as you press the plunger. Inject in a high sided hotel pan or bus tub and hold your hand over where you are injecting to contain the mess.

Season the exterior of the brisket with remaining rub and remaining salt.

Place brisket directly on the grill grate and cook for about 6 hours or until the internal temperature reaches 160℉.

Wrap the brisket tightly in two layers of foil or butcher paper. Return to grill. Cook an additional 3 hours or until the internal temperature reaches 204℉.

Remove brisket from the grill and lift corner from wrapping to let steam escape. Close the corner and allow meat to rest 60 minutes before slicing. Slice and enjoy!

*Cook times will vary depending on set and ambient temperatures.
