Introduction: If you’re a meat lover and enjoy rich, smoky flavors, then this Texan-style smoked brisket recipe is the perfect meal for you! Prepared with love and passion, this recipe is guaranteed to wow your taste buds and satisfy your hunger. So, let’s get started!


  • 8-10 lbs beef brisket, trimmed
  • 2 tbsp kosher salt
  • 2 tbsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tbsp cumin
  • 1/2 tbsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar


  1. Preheat your smoker to 225°F with your choice of wood chips. We recommend hickory or oak for a rich, smoky flavor.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, cumin, and cayenne pepper.
  3. Rub the spice mixture all over the brisket, making sure to coat it evenly on all sides.
  4. Place the brisket on the smoker, fat-side up, and close the lid. Smoke the brisket for 6-8 hours, or until the internal temperature reaches 195°F.
  5. Once the brisket reaches the desired temperature, remove it from the smoker and wrap it tightly in foil.
  6. In a small saucepan, mix together the beef broth and apple cider vinegar. Heat the mixture over medium heat until it comes to a boil.
  7. Pour the mixture over the wrapped brisket and return it to the smoker for another hour.
  8. After an hour, remove the brisket from the smoker and let it rest for at least 30 minutes before slicing and serving.

Important notes:

  • It’s important to trim the excess fat from the brisket before cooking to ensure it cooks evenly.
  • Letting the brisket rest before slicing allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat, resulting in a more tender and flavorful final product.
  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or frozen for up to 2 months.
