Whenever I want to impress someone who comes to dinner, I throw a brisket on my Traeger. It’s always a hit and, honestly, is super easy. With barely any prep and a few check-ins here and there, you’ll be able to have a meal no one will stop talking about! Here’s the Traeger brisket recipe I always use. 

Traeger Brisket Recipe

Beginners Smoked Beef Brisket

Ingredients:

1 (6 LB) BRISKET FLAT, TRIMMED

TRAEGER BEEF RUB, AS NEEDED

2 CUPS BEEF BROTH, BEER OR COLA

1/4 CUP APPLE CIDER VINEGAR, APPLE CIDER OR APPLE JUICE

2 TBSP WORCESTERSHIRE SAUCE

TRAEGER TEXAS SPICY BBQ SAUCE, OR YOUR FAVORITE BBQ SAUCE

Directions: 

When ready to cook, set temperature to 180℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.

Season the on both sides with the Traeger Beef Rub.

Make the Mop Sauce: In a clean spray bottle, combine the beef broth, beer, or cola with apple cider vinegar, and Worcestershire sauce.

Arrange the brisket fat-side down on the grill grate and smoke for 3 to 4 hours, spraying with the mop sauce every hour.

Increase the grill temperature to 225℉ and continue to cook, spraying occasionally with mop sauce, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the meat reaches 204℉, this should take about 6 to 8 hours.

Foil the meat and let it rest for 30 minutes. Slice with a sharp knife across the grain into pencil-width slices.

Serve with BBQ sauce. Enjoy!

*Cook times will vary depending on set and ambient temperatures.

 

A few tips! From my experience, the time you cook the meat doesn't matter as much as the internal temperature of the meat, so you'll want to invest in an instant-read meat thermometer. You'll also want to save any leftovers to make brisket tacos! They're delicious!
