brined smoked brisket
1 (5-7 lb) flat cut brisket
1 Cup brown sugar
1/2 Cup kosher salt
1/4 Cup Your Favorite Beef Rub
Dissolve salt and sugar in 6 quarts boiling water. Add 6 cups ice then let it cool. Place the brisket in the brine and cover. Leave brine in the refrigerator overnight.
Remove the brisket from the brine and pat it dry with a paper towel. Sprinkle evenly with Z Grill Beef Rub.
When ready to cook, set Z Grill temperature to 250℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
Place the brisket on the Z Grill, fat cap down and smoke for 3 hours.
After 3 hours, double wrap the brisket in foil and turn the temperature up to 275℉. Cook meat until internal temperature reaches 204℉, about 3 to 4 hours.
Unwrap the brisket and place it unwrapped on the grill for 30 more minutes.
Remove the brisket from the grill and let it rest for 15 minutes before slicing against the grain. Enjoy!
