Traeger smoked brisket is a meaty marvel that's been around since the early days. 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

  • 1 (6-8 lb.) Brisket
  • as needed Your Preferred Rub, Traeger's Beef Shake, Prime Rib Rub, or Salt & Pepper
  • 1 (6-8 lb.) Brisket
  • as needed Your Preferred Rub, Traeger's Beef Shake, Prime Rib Rub, or Salt & Pepper

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 this recipe.

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

Let the wrapped meat 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 meat 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 160F, remove from the grill and wrap in foil - DO NOT remove thermometer probe.

Place foiled brisket back on grill and cook until internal temperature is 204F.

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