Who does love a perfect brisket, there isn’t anything that makes it not amazing, however creating that perfect brisket is really hard. I asked Stubb’s BBQ expert Rocky Stubblefield to share some simple tips on how to barbecue the perfect brisket. He was willing to share with me a great recipe for Brisket Tacos with Roasted Corn Avocado Salsa to make with that perfect brisket.


Stubb’s BBQ expert Rocky Stubblefield Brisket Tips

  • Get a good crust: One of the most delicious parts of a brisket is the flavor crust. Make sure you rub the entire brisket generously with Stubb’s Beef or Bar-B-Q Spice Rub 15-20 minutes before the meat goes on the grill or in the smoker.
  • Fat side up: Whether in your smoker or on a charcoal grill, place the brisket fat-side up so that the fat drips down into the meat and it stays moist.
  • Slicing is important: Make sure you cut against or across the grain of the brisket for tender slices. Not sure where the grain is? It’s easier to see on the raw meat before it’s rubbed, so cut a notch when prepping to help guide once it’s cooked.
  • Add the sauce: As we say in Texas – it’s not done ‘til you add the sauce! Serve on the side for dipping or drizzle it over the top.
