  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    Preheat smoker and add wood chips of your choice. Clean and dry the brisket. Combine rub ingredients and apply onto brisket.
  3. Step 3

    Place brisket in the smoker for 8 to 10 hours. Keep the smoker temperature at about 225 F (110 C). To increase tenderness, take the brisket out of the smoker, wrap in aluminum foil and place in the oven at 180 to 200 F (80 C to 95 C) for the last two hours. Typically after 8 to 10 hours a piece of meat will have absorbed as much smoke as it can and additional smoking may impart a bitter flavor.
  4. Step 4

    Take brisket off of heat and allow to sit for 20 minutes before slicing.
