Smoked Brisket

Prep Time:
10-15 mins
Cook Time:
8-12 mins



  • 6-9 lbs. brisket (best available preferably Wagyu)
  • 1 lb salt
  • 1 cup ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup garlic powder
  • ¼ cup Paprika
  • ¼ cup ground white pepper
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup ground mustard


Set the EGG for indirect cooking using the convEGGtor at 275°F/135°C, using soaked oak or mesquite chips.

Trim excess fat off brisket to make smooth-even surface. Mix all the dry ingredients together and rub the brisket well with the seasoning mix (reserve any remaining for future brisket).

Cook the brisket until the internal temperature reaches 203°F/9°5C. This usually takes 8-12 hours. Your brisket will hit a “stall” somewhere during the cook; you will notice the internal temperature increasing quickly and then plateauing when moisture starts to form on the outside of the brisket. Be patient – it can take a few hours to get past this stage. To speed up the cooking and reduce the darkness of the outer bark you can wrap the brisket in butcher paper and put back on the EGG.

When the brisket hits 203°Fdrop it from 3” above a cutting board. The brisket should not bounce, rather it could settle on the board with a “jiggle”. This is the best way to test that all of the connective tissue has been fully cooked down and that the brisket will be tender.
