  1. Fire up your Grill/Smoker as per the instructions in the manual.  
  2. Make sure to build the fire next to one side of the grill, or in the Firebox so that you cook with indirect heat.
  3. Trim brisket to have no more than ¼ inch of fat inside and out. 
  4. Liberally apply Original BBQ Rub and Steak Maker to the brisket.
  5. Once charcoal is ready to cook on, add a few wood chunks to the fire.
  6. Cook brisket (unwrapped) at 250ºF to 275ºF using indirect heat and smoke for 6 hours.  Make sure brisket is positioned away from the coal bed, near the smoke stack.  Add charcoal and wood as needed to maintain cooking temperature.
  7. After brisket has cooked 6 hours, place brisket in foil.  
  8. Continue to cook for approximately 3 hours at 275 to 300 degrees
  9. Pull brisket from cooker and let rest at room temperature for 1 hour before slicing and serving.  Slice against the grain for best results.
  10. Make sure that brisket reaches a minimum internal meat temperature of 190F.  For best results, keep brisket from exceeding 200ºF.
