  • 1 Coyote Pellet Grill


  • 6 pound Beef Brisket
  • Barbecue sauce (optional for basting)

Recommended Seasoning Rub

  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Yellow Mustard
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Paprika
  • 2 tablespoons Kosher Salt
  • 2 tablespoons Black Pepper
  • 2 tablespoons Garlic Powder
  • 2 tablespoons Onion Powder
  • 1 tablespoon Cayenne Pepper optional for heat


Preparing the Brisket

  • Start by trimming the excess fat from the brisket, leaving a thin layer on top for flavor and moisture.
  • In a bowl, combine the Worcestershire sauce, apple cider vinegar, yellow mustard, brown sugar, paprika, kosher salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and cayenne pepper (if desired). Mix well to create a flavorful marinade.
  • Season the brisket with your homemade rub and seasonings. Ensure it is thoroughly coated, covering all sides of the brisket.
  • Wrap the seasoned brisket tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 12 to 24 hours, allowing the flavors to penetrate the meat.

Preheating and Smoking on the Coyote Pellet Grill

  • Preheat the Coyote Pellet Grill to 225°F (107°C) according to the manufacturer's instructions. Fill the pellet hopper with mesquite wood pellets.
  • Place the marinated brisket directly on the grill grates, fat side up.
  • Smoke the brisket for a total of 8 hours, maintaining a consistent temperature of 225°F (107°C). Every 4 hours, check the brisket and ensure there are enough wood pellets in the hopper for continuous smoke production.
  • After 8 hours, the brisket should be nearly finished.

Resting and Serving

  • Check the internal temperature of the brisket using a meat thermometer. The ideal temperature for a perfectly cooked brisket is around 204°F (96°C).
  • Once the brisket reaches the desired temperature, carefully remove it from the grill and wrap it tightly in double-layered aluminum foil.
  • Let the brisket rest for 30 minutes to allow the juices to redistribute and the meat to become tender.
  • After resting, unwrap the brisket and slice it against the grain to ensure maximum tenderness.
  • Serve the mouthwatering Kansas City brisket with your favorite barbecue sauce, sides, and enjoy the incredible flavors.
