Best Smoked Brisket Recipe

Growing up, the smell of a brisket smoking on the pit was something I always looked forward to. My dad was (and still is) the master at smoking a beef brisket. Every single smoked brisket is perfect. Great flavor, tender and juicy.

It’s pure perfection! The secret to his smoked brisket is his smoker/BBQ pit. At nearly 40 years old, the smoker/BBQ he built with his own two hands and a welding machine is slowly deteriorating beyond the ability to smoke a brisket anymore. We use it ONLY for special occasions.

While trying to preserve my dad’s pit, oftentimes we use our Masterbuilt Electric Smoker to smoke a beef brisket, ribs, chicken or turkey. While it doesn’t house 40 years of seasoning like my dad’s pit…the hickory flavored wood chips provide a great flavor to our smoked brisket. And to top it off, our beef brisket is always flavorful, tender and juicy too.

Don’t believe me…give it a try for yourself! :)
