  • 3.5 lbs Corned beef brisket
  • 3 tbsp Pickling spices
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 2 tbsp Paprika
  1. Wash the brisket in the cold water and transfer into a large pot. Marinade overnight in water.

  2. Next day pull out the brisket from the fridge and prepare for seasoning. Rub it with two tablespoons of olive oil on each side. For the rub use three tablespoons of pickling spices and two tablespoons of paprika. I put mine into a  food processor and blend it for about ten seconds to crack all the seeds. That, in turn, will release great aroma and it will smell fantastic.

  3. Transfer the brisket to a smoker. I use charcoal pit barrel smoker. It's a 30-gallon drum that smokes in a vertical position. It took me 1.5h to bring the brisket to an internal temperature of 160 F.

  4. Pull the brisket from the smoker and transfer into a large pot with steam basket. Steam for about 45 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 200 degrees F. Let it rest for 15 min, slice afterwards and enjoy!
