Smoked Brisket Marinade

Brisket has a great natural flavor. But because this cut requires such a long smoke time, it needs a little added moisture to keep it from drying out. To get a juicy brisket without masking the natural flavor of the meat, use a marinade that has subtle flavors.

Ingredients

For the Marinade

  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Ingredient Tips

Beef Broth
Avoid reduced-sodium beef broth. The salt helps tenderize the brisket as well as season it.

Directions

Step 1 Of 4
1
In a large pan, mix all ingredients until well combined.
2
Add brisket. Using a marinade injector, inject the brisket with the marinade all the way down the brisket. Do this in about 1 inch increments.
3
Let rest overnight in the fridge.
Hot Tip
Seal brisket and marinade in a container while it rests in fridge. This will prevent cross contamination with other foods.
4
Discard marinade after use. Because it has been in contact with raw meat, it is not safe to use again.
