Chicken Enchiladas


  • 1 whole beef brisket, 8-10 pounds

  • Espresso Dry Rub seasoning

  • 2 cups of regular coke

  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

  • Your favorite smoker


  1. Rinse the beef brisket and pat it dry. Place the brisket on a baking sheet.

  2. Generously rub Espresso Dry Rub seasoning all over the brisket, ensuring an even coating.

  3. Allow the brisket to sit at room temperature for about an hour or until the rub forms a flavorful paste.

  4. Preheat your smoker to 225 degrees Fahrenheit.

  5. Place the brisket in the smoker, fat side up, to allow the fat to baste the meat during the cooking process.

  6. Spray a mop sauce (2 cups of regular coke, 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar, 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce) over the brisket every hour. This helps to keep the meat moist and flavorful.

  7. Use a meat thermometer to monitor the internal temperature of the brisket. The goal is to reach an internal temperature of around 195-205 degrees Fahrenheit for optimal tenderness.

  8. Once the brisket reaches the desired temperature, remove it from the smoker.

  9. Allow the smoked brisket to rest for at least 20-30 minutes before slicing. This resting period helps redistribute the juices, ensuring a juicy and flavorful result.

  10. Slice the brisket against the grain into desired thickness.

  11. Serve and enjoy the rich, smoky flavor of Espresso Dry Rub Smoked Beef Brisket.

Elevate your barbecue game with this Espresso Dry Rub seasoned smoked brisket, a perfect blend of bold flavors and tender, juicy goodness.

Suggested Sides/Wine & Drink Parings:

  1. Smoked Baked Beans: Prepare a pot of hearty smoked baked beans with bacon, molasses, and a hint of barbecue sauce. The smokiness of the beans will complement the flavor profile of the brisket.

  2. Garlic Mashed Potatoes: Whip up creamy garlic mashed potatoes for a comforting side. The robust flavors of the garlic will add depth to the meal, while the creamy texture provides a satisfying contrast to the smoky brisket.

  3. Grilled Vegetables Medley: Create a colorful medley of grilled vegetables, such as zucchini, bell peppers, and cherry tomatoes. The smoky char from the grill enhances the overall barbecue experience.

  4. Red Wine: Malbec: The dark fruit flavors and robust tannins of a Malbec can complement the deep, smoky, and slightly bitter notes of the espresso dry rub. Look for a Malbec with a good balance of fruitiness and structure, as it can provide a nice counterpoint to the richness of the beef brisket.

  5. Craft Beer: Smoked Porter: A smoked porter can be an excellent choice to pair with an espresso dry rub beef brisket. The smokiness of the beer can enhance the flavors of the brisket and add an additional layer of complexity. The roasted malt characteristics of the porter can also complement the espresso notes in the rub, creating a harmonious pairing.

These sides offer a balance of textures and flavors, enhancing the dining experience when served alongside Espresso Dry Rub Smoked Beef Brisket.


  • Thorough Rub Application: Ensure a generous and even application of the Espresso Dry Rub seasoning all over the beef brisket. This step contributes to the development of a flavorful crust during the smoking process.

  • Patience in Smoking: Maintain a steady smoker temperature of 225 degrees Fahrenheit for slow and low cooking. This allows the brisket to absorb the smoky flavors while becoming tender and juicy.

  • Mop Sauce Mastery: Regularly apply the mop sauce consisting of regular coke, apple cider vinegar, and Worcestershire sauce every hour. This not only prevents the brisket from drying out but also imparts additional layers of flavor.

  • Proper Resting Period: After the brisket reaches the desired internal temperature, resist the temptation to slice immediately. Let the smoked brisket rest for at least 20-30 minutes. This crucial step allows the juices to redistribute, ensuring a moist and succulent result when sliced.

These tips should guide you in achieving a perfectly smoked Espresso Dry Rub Beef Brisket with exceptional flavor and tenderness.
