What do you do when you get a new smoker? You throw down the king of meats, brisket. Easy Gluten Free Smoked Texas Style Brisket is what barbecue dreams are made of.
Are you team sauce, or no sauce? Are you eating your brisket straight from the cutting board, or piling it up into a tortilla? However you like it, this easy to follow guide will have you feeling like a total rockstar at your next backyard barbecue.
All About the Ingredients
When you start with the right ingredients, it doesn't take much to let them shine. Easy Gluten Free Smoked Texas Style Brisket is all about the beef itself given just enough love to let it sparkle.
I don't know about you, but I can't think of anything more impressive to pull off the smoker than a brisket. It's a cut of beef meant to be celebrated, and to celebrate with. While it does take time and is a process to cook, the majority of the time you can be hands off as it smokes low and slow.
For this cook I used a brisket from First Light Farms. The Grass-Fed Wagyu from New Zealand. The 100% grass fed diet leads to great tasting, tender meat packed with Omega-3s and natural marbling.
This brisket was smoked in my Traeger Grills pellet smoker and seasoned with my favorite Outside Table Simply SPG. It's texture helps build a beautiful bark while the balance of flavors combine that ideal salt, pepper, and garlic that pairs so perfectly with beef.
Breaking Down Easy Gluten Free Smoked Texas Style Brisket
Invite your friends over and fire up the smoker. I will break down how easy it is to serve up the king of barbecued foods.
- Mix your SPG and kosher salt together. Liberally season all sides of your trimmed brisket. You can do this portion the night before if desired.
- Preheat your smoker to 225 degrees.
- Place the seasoned brisket on the smoker and allow it to smoke for 8-10 hours or until the internal temperature is 165 and the bark is set. This means when you touch it, none of the seasoning comes off onto your hand.
- Wrap it in butcher paper and place back on the smoker for another 4-6 hours, or until the internal temperature is 202. In addition, it should also be probe tender. This means when you insert your instant read thermometer it will have no give.
- Remove the brisket from the smoker and allow it to sit out on your cutting board to come to room temperature for an hour. This will allow the juices to redistribute into the meat.
- Slice and serve with your favorite BBQ fixings!
