How to Make Smoked Brisket on a Masterbuilt

Alright, listen up, folks! I’m gonna give you the lowdown on how to whip up some of the most mouthwaterin’ smoked brisket you’ve ever tasted. Fire up that Masterbuilt smoker of yours, and let’s get cookin’:

  1. Prep That Brisket: Grab yourself a hunk of beef brisket. You want it to be well-marbled for that juicy goodness. Give it a nice rubdown with your favorite dry rub. Let it sit in the fridge overnight, so those flavors can mingle and make magic happen.

  2. Get that Smoke Rollin’: Load up your Masterbuilt smoker with some quality wood chips. Now, set that bad boy to about 225°F. Once it’s smokin’ like a chimney, it’s showtime!

  3. Time to Smoke: Place that beautifully seasoned brisket onto the smoker rack. Close the lid and let the smoke work its magic. This is where patience comes in, my friends. We’re talkin’ low and slow—somewhere around 1.5 to 2 hours per pound. That’s a whole lotta love goin’ into that meat!

  4. Wrap It Up: When the brisket’s bark (that’s the crispy, flavorful outer layer) looks like it’s got the perfect smoky kiss, it’s time for the Texas Crutch. Wrap that brisket in some butcher paper or foil, toss in a bit of liquid (like apple juice), and let it keep cookin’ until it’s so tender it practically falls apart.

  5. Cue the Heavenly Aromas: Once that brisket’s reached the magical internal temperature of around 195°F, it’s ready to come off the smoker. But hold your horses! Let it rest for a bit, so those juices can redistribute and create a melt-in-your-mouth experience.

Selecting the Right Beef Brisket

Now, y’all might be wonderin’, “How in the heck do I choose the right hunk of beef?” Well, I’ll let you in on a little secret: go for choice or prime-grade brisket. Look for a cut that’s got some marbling action goin’ on—that fat is gonna keep things moist and oh-so-tasty!

Best Wood Chips to Use

Ah, the aroma of smoldering wood chips! For a classic, rich flavor, hickory and oak are the champs. But hey, don’t be afraid to experiment with fruitwoods like apple or cherry for a sweeter twist. That’s the beauty of smokin’—you’re the boss of your flavorscape!

Texas Crutch

No, we ain’t talkin’ ’bout line dancing here! The Texas Crutch is all about that tender lovin’ care. Wrappin’ up your brisket in butcher paper or foil helps it power through that stall, reachin’ peak tenderness and flavor.

The Sauce

Alright, let’s address the age-old sauce debate. Personally, I’m all for that classic, smoky goodness without drownin’ the meat. A simple mop sauce made with some of the rub and apple cider vinegar will do the trick, but hey, if you’re feelin’ saucy, go ahead and slather on your favorite BBQ sauce!

Carving and Serving

Folks, the moment of truth has arrived—carvin’ that masterpiece! Grab a sharp knife and slice against the grain. You’ll be rewarded with slices of tender heaven that practically melt in your mouth. Serve it up with some classic sides like coleslaw, cornbread, and baked beans, and you’ve got yourself a BBQ feast fit for a king!
