14 servings

  • 1 cup kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon granulated garlic
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 whole beef brisket, about 10 pounds
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • Make a dry rub by mixing the salt, pepper, garlic and cayenne in a small bowl.

  • Trim the brisket fat and season liberally with the dry rub. Put into a preheated 250 degree smoker and smoke it for 8 to 10 hours. Shift the position of the brisket every 2 hours. Remove when the brisket is tender which is determined by poking it with a toothpick. Transfer to a cutting board and slice. Arrange on a serving platter and serve.

I had never had pit bbq before Podnahs opened in Portland. Now I am a regular. I love the Beef Brisket! It is great you can make it at home...but I still would rather go to Podnahs. The people there make you feel at home. The manager Matt Bennett always checks on our table. item not reviewed by moderator and published
