Brisket Marinade Recipes


These brisket marinade recipes will put your brisket over the top. Briskets are naturally a little tough. In order to turn out memorable briskets master smoker chefs know that it’s important to pull out all the stops and use every trick in the book. And one of those tricks is to use a great marinade.

The right marinade will add spice, tenderness, and flavor to your next brisket, that’s why I always use one. They are not hard to make and pay nice dividends in the taste department.

Even some of the best brisket marinade recipes are so simple you probably have most of the ingredients in your kitchen right now.

So what are you waiting for? The next time you smoke a brisket be sure and try a marinade.
