Keto Brined Barbecued Beef Brisket Recipe


  • 2 pounds (910 g) beef brisket
  • 2 teaspoons meat tenderizer
  • 2 tablespoons (40 g) rock salt
  • 1 quart (960 ml) water
  • 1 tablespoon (7.8 g) chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons (3 g) Splenda
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon (16.5 g) tomato paste
  • hellfire Beef Brisket Rub.


  1. Wood chips or chunks, soaked for at least 30 minutes
  2. Put the brisket on a plate, sprinkle one side with 1 teaspoon of the meat tenderizer, and pierce it all over with a fork
  3. Flip it over and do the same to the other side with the remaining teaspoon of tenderizer
  4. Let that sit a minute
  5. In a flat, shallow, large container just big enough to hold the brisket, dissolve the salt in the water
  6. Stir in the chili powder, Splenda, garlic, and tomato paste
  7. Submerge the brisket in the brine-add just a little more water if the brisket isn’t totally submerged
  8. Let the brisket brine for 3 to 5 hours
  9. When brining time is up, pull out the brisket and sprinkle it liberally all over with the Hellfire Beef Brisket Rub
  10. Set up your grill for indirect cooking (put the coals on one side of the grill or leave half the burners off on a gas grill)
  11. Add wood chips or chunks and smoke the brisket for a good 3 to 4 hours
  12. Mop with the Hellfire Beef Brisket Beer Mop every half hour to 45 minutes, using a clean utensil each time you baste
  13. When smoking times up, slice the brisket thin across the grain and serve

  1. The analysis comes up saying 19 grams of carbohydrate per serving, with 3 grams of fiber, but the vast majority of that is in the brine and the mop
