Brisket on the Pellet Grill

Heath Riles



  1. Get pellet grill up to 275º, we used pecan pellets.
  2. Trim brisket to your liking.
  3. Season brisket with Heath Riles BBQ Everyday Rub, Beef Rub & Pecan Rub on both sides.
  4. Cook at 275º for 3 hours and then start spritzing (recipe above) every hour until the brisket bark is formed and the brisket reaches an internal temperature of 160º-170º.
  5. Once your internal temperature of 160º-170º is reached, wrap your brisket with 1 cup of spritz mixture.
  6. Increase grill temperature to 325º.
  7. Cook brisket until an internal temperature of 202º is reached or until the brisket feels like soft butter.
  8. Once brisket is done cooking, rest for 30 minutes to 1 hour before slicing.
**Remember every piece of meat is different, finishing temps will vary. Always go by feel.

    I have spent several evenings watching your you tube cooks. I don’t remember seeing you use a water pan for anything. I have a backwoods smoker. I fill the pan for most all smokes.
