Step 1

Preheat grill to medium‑low.

Score brisket using a sharp knife to make shallow cuts in the surface, about 1/4-inch deep and about 1-inch apart.

In a small mixing bowl, combine brown sugar, cumin, cloves, paprika, and salt.

Rub brown sugar mixture over surface of brisket and into scores.

Place brisket fat‑side-down on grill. Smoke 2 hours without turning.

Preheat oven to 250°F.

Remove meat from grill, wrap tightly in heavy‑duty aluminum foil and place on a baking sheet. Bake 2 hours.

Remove from oven, allow to stand 30 to 60 minutes before serving.
