  • 1 corned beef brisket or round halfcut about 4-8#
  • 1/2 cup Garlic Junky Seasoning from Spiceology
  • 1/2 cup whiskey
  • 2-3 cups beef broth
  • 2 cups carrots, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 yellow onion, cut into 1/2 inch slices


  • Preheat grill to 225°
  • Remove corned beef and reserve pickling spice packet.
  • Pat the brisket dry with a paper towel and then season it liberally with the Garlic Junky seasoning. Allow it to sit for about 15 minutes as the grill heats up.
  • Place the seasoned meat on the grill and smoke for 2-3 hours.
  • In a grill-proof pan, combine carrots, onions, whiskey, reserved pickling spice and beef broth.
  • Place the smoked meat on top of the veggie/broth mixture.
  • Cover it tightly with two layers of aluminum foil.
  • Return the pan to the grill at 275° and continue cooking for 2-3 hours, checking the internal temperature of the meat after 2 hours.
  • When the internal temperature reaches 200°, remove the meat from the grill and pan and tent lightly to rest for about 45 minutes.
  • Slice the meat and serve with boiled potatoes, carrots and cabbage. Or slice thinly and serve on sandwiches!
