1 whole beef brisket, 10-12 lbs
1/4 cup coarse sea salt
1/4 cup coarsely ground black pepper
1/4 cup paprika
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon cumin
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon mustard powder
1/4 cup beef broth
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
If you would rather use a rub already made, try the above sold at Amazon. But the recipe here is very good.
Preheat your pellet grill to 225°F.
In a small bowl, mix together the salt, black pepper, paprika, brown sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, chili powder, and mustard powder to create a rub.
Trim the brisket of any excess fat, leaving about 1/4 inch of fat on top. Season the brisket generously with the rub, making sure to coat both sides.
Place the brisket on the grill, fat-side up, and close the lid. Cook for approximately 1 hour per pound of meat, or until the internal temperature of the brisket reaches 195-205°F.
After the first 4-5 hours of cooking, spritz the brisket with a mixture of beef broth and apple cider vinegar every 30-45 minutes to keep it moist.
Once the brisket reaches the desired internal temperature, remove it from the grill and wrap it tightly in butcher paper or aluminum foil. Let it rest for at least 1 hour to allow the juices to redistribute.
Slice the brisket against the grain and serve with your favorite barbecue sauce.
Enjoy your delicious Texas-style brisket cooked on a pellet grill!
