Ingredients
  • 4 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 tablespoon dried marjoram
  • 4 teaspoons granulated garlic
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • In bowl, blend dry spices together to use as a rub. Moisten brisket with water. Coat the entire brisket with the spice rub. Press spices into meat with your hands. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours, preferably overnight.

  • Preheat a grill for indirect heat, banking coals and soaked mesquite wood chips in a circle around the sides of a grill. Set a drip pan with water in the center of the ring. Place brisket on the grill rack over the pan of water.

  • Keep cooking temperature in grill between 180 to 220 degrees F until done. Allow about 45 minutes per pound until the meat reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer, adding new coals as necessary.

  • For a sweet glaze, baste with your favorite barbeque sauce during the final 15 minutes of cooking.
