2.5 Kg to 3 kg (5 lb to 6 lb) trimmed brisket

150 Ml ( c) dried cane sugar (dry in oven before using)

150 Ml ( c) garlic salt

125 Ml (½ c) paprika

45 Ml (3 tbsp) pepper

30 Ml (2 tbsp) chilli powder

15 Ml (1 tbsp) each of powdered beef bouillon, ground ginger, onion powder, ground coriander, cayenne pepper

French’s ballpark mustard (lots)


Smother the brisket with lots of the mustard.

Mix all the dry ingredients together to create a rub.

Roll the mustard-covered brisket in the rub.

Smoking Method:

Using Mesquite flavor bisquettes, smoke and cook for approximately 10 hours.

The damper should be half open and the temperature should be steady at 80°C to 90°C (180°F to 200°F).

Smoke for a minimum of 4 hours or longer, depending on how strong a smoke flavor is desired.

Check your bottom tray occasionally to make certain the drippings don’t overflow. Remember this cut of meat is best cooked very slow and at low temperatures.

To Serve:

Slice meat thickly and serve with large crusty rolls and quality BBQ sauce.

Ready-to-serve tip: never put BBQ sauce on the meat, serve it separately as a dip.

As the strongest of the smoker woods, it perfectly complements rich meats such as steak, duck, and lamb with its stronger, slightly sweeter, and more delicate than Hickory flavour.
