The Perfect Dry Rubbed Smoked Brisket Recipe

Are you ready to take your barbecue skills to the next level? Look no further than the mouthwatering dry rubbed smoked brisket. Brisket, sourced from the muscular breast area of the steer, is renowned for its rich flavor and tender texture. However, its toughness requires a low and slow cooking method, making it ideal for smoking.

The Art of Smoking Brisket

When it comes to smoking brisket, two debates arise among pitmasters: marinating versus dry rubbing, and the resting technique. Some swear by marinating overnight, while others prefer a last-minute dry rub application. As for resting, should the brisket be left on a cutting board or wrapped in foil and a towel, then stored in a cooler? The differing opinions abound.

At Rowdy Hog Smokin BBQ, we believe in finding balance. Our dry rubbed smoked brisket recipe showcases a harmonious blend of flavors without the need for an overnight marinade. Instead, we let the dry rub work its magic, infusing the meat with a symphony of taste during the smoking process.

The Electric Smoker Method

While any type of smoker will do, we’ll dive into the details of using an electric smoker for this recipe. Our go-to is the Masterbuilt Digital Electric Smoker, but Traeger, Pit Boss, or Bradley smokers are equally reliable options. The key is to let the smoker work its magic while you sit back and enjoy the anticipation.

The Brisket Journey

  1. Start by selecting a quality brisket. Look for well-marbled meat with a nice fat cap to ensure tenderness and flavor.
  2. Prepare the dry rub. Combine a variety of spices, such as paprika, brown sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Let your creativity shine as you mix the perfect blend.
  3. Generously coat the brisket with the dry rub, ensuring all sides are covered. The spices will create a beautiful crust that locks in the smoky goodness.
  4. Fire up your electric smoker and set the temperature to 225°F (107°C). Patience is key; this is a slow and steady process.
  5. Place the seasoned brisket on the smoker grates and close the lid. Now, it’s time to let the magic happen. Maintaining a consistent temperature, allow the brisket to smoke for approximately 1.5 hours per pound of meat.
  6. Resist the temptation to constantly check on the meat. Trust the process and have faith in your skills.
  7. Once the internal temperature reaches 195°F (90°C), it’s time to take the brisket off the smoker. Carefully wrap it in foil, then let it rest for 30-60 minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute, ensuring maximum flavor and tenderness.
  8. Finally, it’s time to slice and serve. Each bite will be a testament to your dedication and passion for the art of smoking.
