Let's face it, there are some brisket recipes out there that have so many steps in the process, it can be intimidating for anyone that isn't a BBQ pitmaster. Some call for you to wrap it in butcher paper and throw into a cooler to have it rest for a couple of hours before smoking it again! But if you’re in of an easy smoked brisket recipe, look no further than this 3-step recipe that delivers a delicious beefy meal.



  • 1 - 12-15 lbs Beef, Brisket

Special Tools


  1. Turn your Pit Boss to smoke mode, let the fire catch and then set your grill to 225°F.
  2. While your grill is heating up, trim your brisket of excess fat (you'll want to leave about ¼ of an inch of fat so the meat stays moist during the long cooking process), and season with Pit Boss Lonestar Beef Brisket - whatever floats your boat! Place your brisket on the grates of the grill, fat side up. Let it smoke for about 8 - 10 hours, or until the internal temperature reaches 190°F.
  3. Wrap in Pit Boss Peach Butcher Paper and then wrap that in a towel. Let it rest in the cooler for up to an hour so the juices can sit.
  4. Slice against the grain and serve.
  5. ENJOY!
