Chef Tom fires up the Yoder Smokers YS640s Pellet Grill to smoke a delicious KC Cattle Company whole wagyu brisket. For this cook we let the brisket smoke open and unwrapped from start to finish, creating an impressive bark and smoke ring. Couple this technique with the injection and the fat content of the wagyu brisket and you get a juicy brisket with incredible texture and flavor with very little effort!

Place the brisket on the second shelf of the grill, fat side down. Cook until probe tender. A digital thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the brisket should have little resistance when probed. The internal temperature will be about 205ºF-210ºF. Total cook time for an 8 lb brisket will be about 8 hours.
Wrap the brisket in butcher paper or foil, then wrap in a beach towel. Place the brisket in a cooler to rest for at least 30 minutes before slicing.
