  • Combine sugar and seasonings; rub onto meat. Refrigerate 1 hour. Meanwhile, soak wood chips in water.
  • Place foil drip pan on bottom barbecue grate; arrange charcoal evenly around drip pan. Light charcoal. When coals are hot, sprinkle with 2 cups wood chips. Place meat, fat side up, on top barbecue grate over centre of drip pan; cover. Grill 3 hours, turning after 1-1/2 hours and replenishing charcoal and wood chips as needed. (Note: Keep temperature of barbecue at about 275ºF.)
  • Remove meat from barbecue; wrap in double-layer of heavy-duty foil. Return to barbecue; grill 1 hour or until meat reaches 200ºF. Remove meat from barbecue; carefully unwrap foil at top.
  • Mix remaining ingredients; pour 3/4 cup over meat. Wrap loosely with foil. Let stand 30 min. Transfer meat to cutting board; cut across the grain into thin slices. Serve with remaining barbecue sauce mixture.


If you don't want to smoke the brisket, omit the hickory wood smoking chips. Grill meat over indirect heat on charcoal or gas barbecue as directed.

Use Your Oven

Rub seasoning mixture onto meat; place in shallow pan. Cover with foil. Refrigerate as directed. Bake, covered, in 350ºF oven 1 hour. Reduce oven temperature to 300ºF; bake, uncovered, 2 hours or until meat is tender and done. Continue as directed.


Substitute apple juice for the apple cider.


Seasoned meat can be refrigerated up to 24 hours before grilling as directed.
