Ingredients Needed to Make Brisket Fries:

  • Beef brisket, trimmed*
  • Brown sugar
  • Paprika
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Onion powder
  • Garlic powder
  • Sea salt
  • Kingsford® Match Light® Charcoal
  • French fries – pick your fave

*For this recipe, both our brisket and applewood bacon are from ButcherBox. I trust the quality of their meat, poultry, and seafood. Plus, everything comes perfectly portioned and packaged–which makes my life easier. Oh, and did I mention ButcherBox is delivered straight to your door?

TAILGATE TIP #1: Prepare your spice rub and coat the brisket the night before. Wrap the beef tightly with foil and refrigerate until time to start the grill. This will make the smoked brisket more flavorful. A little spicy, too!

How to Make Smoked Bacon Brisket Fries:

  1. Wash the brisket and pat it dry. Stir together the brown sugar and all spices until well combined. Rub the brisket on all sides with the rub.
  2. Tightly wrap the spice-coated brisket with foil. Refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
  3. Prepare your charcoal grill for indirect cooking / smoking. Check out these great tips from Kingsford.com.
  4. Using Kingsford Charcoal, bring the grill temperature to 225 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the brisket on the grill away from the coals and leave the lid closed. Keep the temperature low and consistent, adding more charcoal briquettes as needed.
  5. Smoke for several hours or until the internal temperature of the brisket has reached 195 degrees Fahrenheit.
  6. Remove the smoked brisket from the grill. Wrap with foil and let rest for 15 minutes. Slice the brisket and chop it into bite-sized pieces.
  7. Serve over cooked french fries along with cheese sauce, crumbled cooked bacon, and green onions.

TAILGATE TIP #2: Prepare the toppings ahead of time so when it is time to eat, everything is ready to go.

TAILGATE TIP #3: If you are cooking this recipe at home, french fries are no problem. If you are taking this tailgate on the road, you can cook them right on a grill. Spread the fries in an even layer in a disposable aluminum pan and heat until crispy, tossing every few minutes to cook all sides.

One of the best things about this tailgate recipe is it is perfect for kicking back around the grill or tossing the football around with friends. Just check the grill temperature and toss on more Kingsford Charcoal briquettes as needed.

Bacon Brisket Fries and Kingsford Charcoal

Kingsford Charcoal for grilling has more edges and surface area to catch the flame quickly, with grooves that provide air channels for fast heating and even burning. The best part? It is great for parties and tailgating to infuse wood-fired flavor into all of your game-day food. Since 1920, Kingsford® Original Charcoal has been the gold standard of grilling.
