  • 4 kg Buff brisket
  • 100g Kosher salt (or sea salt)
  • 50g freshly ground black pepper
  • 20g garlic powder
  • 200ml apple juice


1. Prepare the Bunker Smoker:

  • Start by setting up your BraaiCraft Bunker reverse flow offset smoker. Ensure that the smoker is clean and the firebox is ready to go. You’ll be smoking the Buff brisket low and slow, so maintain a consistent temperature of 110°C (225°F) throughout the cooking process.

2. Season the Brisket:

  • Mix the Kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper, and garlic powder in a small bowl to create your brisket rub.
  • Carefully trim any excess fat from the brisket, leaving a thin layer for flavour and moisture. This is optional, but it can help the rub penetrate the meat better.
  • Sprinkle the seasoning rub generously all over the brisket, ensuring it’s evenly coated. Be sure to cover every surface.

3. Preheat the Smoker:

  • Start a fire in the firebox of your Bunker smoker. Allow it to burn until you achieve a stable cooking temperature of 110°C (225°F).
  • Place a water pan in the smoker to help maintain humidity and ensure the brisket stays moist throughout the cooking process.

4. Smoke the Brisket:

  • Once the smoker reaches the desired temperature, place the seasoned Buff brisket on the smoker grates with the fat side up.
  • Close the smoker and let the brisket cook low and slow. For a 4 kg brisket, this will take approximately 1 hour per kilogram (about 4 hours). Keep an eye on the temperature to ensure it stays steady.

5. Maintain the Smoke:

  • Add wood chips or chunks to the firebox as needed to maintain a light, consistent smoke. Oak or hickory wood works well with Buff brisket for a traditional smoky flavour.

6. Spritz with Apple Juice:

  • Every hour, gently spritz the brisket with apple juice using a spray bottle. This will add flavor and keep the meat moist.

7. Check for Doneness:

  • After 4 hours, start checking the internal temperature of the brisket using a meat thermometer. The brisket is done when the internal temperature reaches 93°C (200°F). The total cooking time may vary, so use the internal temperature as your guide.

8. Rest and Slice:

  • Once the brisket reaches the desired temperature, carefully remove it from the smoker and let it rest for at least 30 minutes. This allows the juices to be redistributed, resulting in a juicier and more flavorful brisket.
  • Slice the Buff brisket against the grain, and serve it with your favourite sides. Enjoy the delicious smoky flavour and tender texture!
