Injection Ingredients

  • 1 Can Coca Cola
  • 1 Cup Beef Broth
  • 3 Tbsp Jack Daniels
  • 3 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 Tsp Garlic Powder
  • Metal Injector

Coca-Cola And Jack Daniels Smoked Brisket Dry Rub Ingredients

  • Pitboss Brisket Rub
  • Olive Oil
  • Pepper


  • Trim some of the fat off of your Brisket I do leave most of the fat on the bottom to allow that to help keep the meat juicy.  I had a 15lb Brisket this time, you order one from Snake River Farms or Omaha Steaks if you can't find brisket locally.
  • Since I use Better Than Beef Bouillon my beef broth was a bit warm still so the powders dissolved fast!
  • In a bowl or Pyrex glass measuring cup mix the beef broth, Jack Daniels, Coca-Cola, Worcestershire Sauce, and Garlic Powder.

How To Smoke Coca-Cola And Jack Daniels Smoked Brisket

  • If you are using a Pit Boss set your smoke setting at P4, I started mine at 8 am in the morning with the smoke setting.  For pellets, I used a Fruit Blend, but this would also be good with Mesquite pellets.
  • Turn up your smoker to 200 degrees 3 hours later, you can use a basting mop to mop your brisket more with Coca-Cola
  • 4 hours later I turned the heat up to 225 for an hour and a half and then removed the brisket.
  • Allow to rest and then slice and serve!
