  1. Bring the brisket to room temperature.

  2. Preheat your smoker to 225°F- setting up for indirect cooking.

  7. Cook the brisket until it reaches an internal temperature of 125°F- this can take up to 4-6 hours.

  9. Pour the melted butter over the brisket and wrap the brisket tightly in the aluminum foil or butcher paper.

  10. Return the brisket to the smoker and continue to cook at 225°F until the brisket reaches an internal temperature of 185°F.
