- 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
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.
