Grilled Brisket


If you are not up to smoking a full sized brisket, this slow grilled brisket recipe is a great alternative. Use a trimmed brisket since you will want as little fat as possible, so as to not cause flare-ups. Remember to baste frequently and keep your grill temperature low.

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 5 hours

Total Time: 5 hours, 30 minutes

Yield: Serves 6 to 8


  • 1 5-pound brisket
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 1 cup water
  • 7 ounce of beer
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons onion powder
  • 2 tablespoons black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons cayenne
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • salt and pepper


Trim excess fat from Brisket and season with garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, cayenne and paprika. Place on rotisserie and put on preheated grill. Prop the lid a little and let cook. Meanwhile prepare sauce. Melt butter in a sauce pan and sauté onion and garlic for about 5 minutes. Add water, cider vinegar, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder and a little salt and pepper to taste. Let simmer for 10-15 minutes. Add beer. Baste over brisket about every 30 minutes. Cook brisket on low for about 4-5 hours. Remove brisket from grill and slice thinly.
