Asian BBQ Brisket Tacos

No one is more excited about eating tacos than I am. I even have tshirts all about my love of tacos. I also love brisket just as much as tacos so it was only natural that we combined the two for a delicious recipe. We hope that you love these Asian BBQ Brisket Tacos.

Asian BBQ Brisket Tacos


  • 5-6# Brisket
  • 1 cup low salt soy sauce
  • 2/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup hoisin
  • 1 cup Jack Daniels BBQ sauce
  • 1 Tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1/2 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp fresh ginger
  • 3 kaffir lime leaves
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 mandarin orange
  • 1 small sweet onion

Asian BBQ Brisket Tacos


  1. Place the rice wine vinegar in a food processor or blender with the ginger, kaffir lime leaves, mandarin orange (peel and all), garlic, and onion.  Process until everything is puréed.  Pour into a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients (except the brisket).
  2. Lightly score the brisket and place in a baking dish.  Pour the sauce over the brisket, reserving about 1 1/2 cups for later use.  Cover and refrigerate for 24 hours.
  3. Prepare your grill for an indirect smoke.  You want a temperature of 225.  Remember, the dome of the grill will be a different temperature than the grill surface.
  4. Throw on the brisket and allow it to cook for around 5 hours.  You want to hit an internal temperature of 170 degrees.
  5. Once you hit your temperature, pull the brisket off and wrap it in foil. Brush some of the BBQ sauce on it before you close it up.  Put it back on the grill and continue to cook for another 1 1/2 to 2 hours.  You want to hit 195-200 degrees internal temperature.
  6. Once at temp, pull the brisket out of the foil, brush with the remaining BBQ sauce, and put it back on the grill for another 20 – 30 minutes.  You want that BBQ to become charred and sticky.
  7. Remove from the heat and cover the brisket with foil.  Allow it to rest for 30 minutes. Then slice, eat, and enjoy.
  8. These tacos are a fabulous way to use your brisket. The first night we had our brisket with baked potatoes and the second night we made tacos.

    Thanks for sharing…what is the purpose of scoring the brisket? I usually don’t do that when I make mine.
