Texas Two-Step Brisket



  • 1 whole packer brisket
  • Basic Barbecue Rub (or your preferred rub)
  • Really Basis Cheap Beer Mop
  • Optional: Mustard Mummy Slather. Apply this mustard slather before the rub if you are smoking a brisket flat vs. smoking the whole packer.

Best Equipment: Anf charcoal grill or smoker, or electric smoker.

Tools: Heavy-duty rubber gloves, spray bottle for mop, remote thermometer, instant read thermometer.

Suggested Wood: Blend of Hickory and Oak

Step by Step:

Rub your brisket one hourto a day ahead of time.

Make your fire slow and low: Feed hot coals to the fire rather than fresh coals, to keep a constant heat

Tip: How much charcoal? How much wood. Depending on weather conditions, you will use about 10-12 punds of charcoal. For quantities of wood chunks or chips, factor about 1 cup per hour or 1-2 chunks per hour for the first 3-4 hours. If you're using an electric smoker, continue adding chunks of wood for the first 6 hours. If you are using wood as your fuel, you will use 12-20 pieces, depending on the size of your smoker.

Place a water pan in the indirect side, under your meat.
