Spicy Grilled Brisket
Ingredients
  • 4 - 6  cups  mesquite wood chips
  • 1 4 - 5  pound  fresh beef brisket
  • 1  tablespoon  cooking oil
  • 2  tablespoons  paprika
  • 1  tablespoon  coarse salt or coarse kosher salt
  • 1  tablespoon  black pepper
  • 1  teaspoon  cayenne pepper
  • 1  teaspoon  dried thyme, crushed
  • 1  Sweet and Hot Barbecue Sauce or 3 cups bottled barbecue sauce
Directions

1. At least 1 hour before grilling, soak wood chips in enough water to cover.

2. Trim fat from brisket. Brush brisket with oil. For rub, in a small bowl stir together paprika, salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and thyme. Sprinkle rub evenly over both sides of meat; rub in with your fingers.

3. Drain wood chips. For a charcoal grill, arrange medium-low coals around a drip pan. Test for low heat above pan. Sprinkle some of the drained wood chips over the coals. Place brisket on grill rack over drip pan. Cover and grill for 3 to 3-3/4 hours or until meat is tender. Add more wood chips every 30 minutes. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to low. Adjust for indirect cooking. Add wood chips according to manufacturers directions. Place meat on a rack in a roasting pan, place on grill rack, and grill as above.)

4. Meanwhile, prepare Sweet and Hot Barbecue Sauce or warm bottled barbecue sauce in a saucepan over low heat. Let meat stand for 10 minutes. To serve, slice meat thinly across the grain. Serve with barbecue sauce. Makes 15 servings.
