  • 8 punds packer cut brisket
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons seasoned salt
  • 1 tablespoon Chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper


  • Trim brisket well, and then combine the brown sugar, seasoned salt, chili powder, and black pepper to make a dry rub. Coat the brisket well, and allow it to reach room temperature.
  • Heat the grill to around 325 degrees. Place brisket on the grill and cook on each side for approximately 30 minutes. Remove brisket from the grill.
  •  Heat oven to 275 degrees, and wrap brisket in foil. You can add sliced onions and garlic cloves to the brisket before wrapping with foil if you like.
  • Place foil-wrapped brisket in a baking dish, and bake brisket for an additional 3 hours. Remove brisket and allow to rest for 20 minutes before slicing.
