  1. Coat beef brisket with mustard. Cover with brisket rub. Let marinate in the refrigerate, 8 hours to overnight.
  2. Remove brisket from the refrigerator and bring to room temperature.
  3. Preheat a smoker to 220 degrees F (104 degrees F) according to manufacturer's instructions.
  4. Place beef brisket in the smoker and smoke until easily pierced with a knife and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads 190 degrees F (88 degrees C), 6 1/4 to 7 1/2 hours.
  5. Wrap brisket with aluminum foil and let rest for 30 minutes before slicing.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Smoke beef for 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hour per pound. A stall usually occurs at about 160 degrees F (71 degrees C); at this point you can wrap in aluminum foil and continue smoking until the right internal temperature is reached.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.
