    Steps

    • 1

      For a 6 to 8 lb brisket, plan for 8 to 12 hours of cook time, roughly 90 minutes per pound. A remote probe thermometer is critical to use for brisket.
    • 2

      Mix all seasoning together and coat brisket liberally. Wrap in plastic wrap. Let the wrapped brisket sit 12 to 24 hours in the refrigerator. Allow plenty of time for cooking.
    • 3

      When ready to cook, set grill temperature to 180℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
