Wagyu Brisket Recipe

Here's a delicious recipe for cooking Wagyu Brisket:


  • 1 Wagyu brisket
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
  • Wood chips or chunks for smoking (such as hickory or oak)
  • Barbecue sauce (optional)


  1. Preheat your smoker to 225°F (107°C) and soak the wood chips or chunks in water for at least 30 minutes.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the kosher salt, black pepper, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, brown sugar, and cayenne pepper (if using) to create a dry rub.
  3. Pat the Wagyu brisket dry with paper towels and generously coat all sides with the dry rub mixture, pressing it into the meat.
  4. Once the smoker has reached the desired temperature, place the brisket on the cooking grate, fat-side up.
  5. Add the soaked wood chips or chunks to the smoker to create smoke and close the smoker's lid.
  6. Maintain a consistent temperature of 225°F (107°C) and smoke the brisket for approximately 1.5 to 2 hours per pound of meat, or until the internal temperature reaches around 195°F (90°C) for tender and juicy brisket.
  7. During the cooking process, you can periodically baste the brisket with your favorite barbecue sauce if desired, or leave it unsauced for a pure smoky flavor.
  8. Once the brisket reaches the desired temperature, remove it from the smoker and let it rest, loosely covered with foil, for about 30 minutes to an hour. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat.
  9. After resting, slice the Wagyu brisket against the grain into thin slices, and serve with your favorite barbecue sauce, if desired.
  10. Enjoy the succulent and flavorful Wagyu brisket, and savor the unique taste and tenderness that only Wagyu beef can provide.
