Smoked Corned Beef Recipe

Smoked Corned Beef Recipe


Brisket is a good cut to make corned beef because it has a nice fat content. It’s also important to slice corned beef against the grain. So, you’ll need 750 g (1 1/2 lb.) raw corned beef brisket.

Smoking Method:

  1. Preheat smoker to approximately 100°C (220°F)
  2. Partially open damper and turn heat down a notch or two to 90°C (190°F)
  3. Place raw meat on an oiled rack
  4. Smoke cook for 5 – 6 hours or until meat is cooked through. An instant meat thermometer should read 70°C (160°F). Cooking time will vary depending on weather and wind conditions. If you wish, smoke can be turned off after 4 hours or when desired smokiness is reached.

Ready to serve:

  1. Slice very thinly across the grain.
  2. Keep refrigerated.
