Atlanta Corn Beef Brisket

So I decided to grill a Corn Beef Brisket which I never done before on the grill. I did some research and inquiring from friends on the best plan to grill this brisket. I decided to go with the Atlanta Brisket method which was introduce to me through a grilling video made by my Friend "John Seltzer" from the Kamado Joe cooking channel and from the facebook group Kamado Joe Grilling, Smoking and more.

I used his method of making it but the only thing different is that I used a Corn Beef Brisket instead of a regular brisket and used my rub mixture on it. This was actually quite easy to grill and smoke! My kids loved it so much that they have already requested me to make it again very soon! Well let’s get grilling shall we!

Ingredients for first stage
  • 2 TBSP Dizzy Pig red eye express
  • 1 TSP freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 TSP mustard seeds
  • ½ TSP garlic powder
  • ½ TSP onion powder
  • Mustard
  • Corn Beef Brisket 3lbs (I got mine from Costco)


1. The first thing you want to do is rinse your brisket under cold water removing all the spice Costco add on it as much as possible;

2. Now you want to let it soak in cold water for 1 hour for every pound of the Corn Beef Brisket and try to change water every 30 minutes. It’s important to do this step or your brisket will end up being real salty;

3. Now drain the water and path the Corn Beef Brisket dry with paper towel;

4. Coat the Corn Beef Brisket with a light coating of mustard by rubbing it with your hands;

5. In a small bowl mixed all the spices and coat the brisket evenly with it;

6. Place brisket in a Ziploc bag and refrigerate 24 hours;

7. Next day pre-heat the Kamado Joe to 250 Degrees Fahrenheit for indirect cooking;

8. Place a few chunk of apple wood on the hot colds then grill and smoke the meat till internal temp reaches 165 Degrees Fahrenheit (for this cook I used my Maverick ET-733 to monitor the pit temp and internal temp of my brisket);

The probes are from my Maverick ET-733 and my Digi-Q temp controller

Ingredients of the second stage:
  • 2 Onion chopped
  • 3 Cups ketchup
  • 4 Cups Coca-Cola (pop)
  • 2 TSP garlic powder
  • 2 TSP salt
  • 4 TSP packed brown sugar
  • 2.5 TSP onion powder
  • 2 TSP fresh ground black pepper

1. To make the sauce you want to whisk in a bowl the spices, sugar, Coca-Cola, and Ketchup; 

2. In a skillet melt 4 TBSP butter then caramelize the chopped onions;

3. In a large foil lay the caramelized onion in the bottom of pan, then place brisket on top of the onion and pour the sauce on top of the Corn Beef brisket;

4. You now want to cover the pan with foil;

5. Ramp up the temperature of the grill to 375 degrees Fahrenheit;

6. It’s now time to grill it for another 2-3 hours till internal temp reaches 190 degrees Fahrenheit ounce you reach this temp you want to poke the meat with fork if it’s not tender enough cook it for another 30 minutes then re-test for tenderness;

7. Remove brisket from the grill and slice the brisket and place the slices in the pan with sauce and let it sit for 30 minutes before serving!

Enjoy and Happy Grilling!
