GAS/CHARCOAL GRILL BRISKET

DSF 3lbs. pound beef brisket

DSF Beef Dry Rub

2 Grill Safe Foil Pans

2 cups Hickory or Mesquite Wood Chips

Apply dry rub generously. Wrap tightly in foil and place the brisket in a pan or dish. Refrigerate the brisket overnight or up to 12 hours. Take the brisket out of the refrigerator for an hour before cooking to allow it to get to room temperature.

Pour wood chips into one of the foil pans and add enough water to cover the chips. Cover with foil and cut small slits to allow smoke to escape. Light the grill and scrape the grates clean.

Turn the burners on one half of the grill off, keep the other half of the burners set to low. Sear the brisket one each side for 5 minutes on the low side of the grill. After searing, place the brisket in the remaining foil pan (fat side up) and move it to the unlit side of the grill. Set the wood chips on the lit side of the grill to allow smoke to build in the grill.

***The same general rules apply to a charcoal grill. Soak the wood chips, but then add directly to the coals. The coals will only be on one side of the grill to allow for the indirect heat.***

Cook the brisket for approximately 3 hours. You want the grill to remain around 300F, adjust grill vents to keep that temperature. Once the internal temperature has reached approximately 200F, remove the brisket from the grill and let rest for 30 minutes. Slice and enjoy with your favorite sauce!
