Homemade Smoked Brisket Cheeseburger Recipe: Elevate Your Grilling Game

Welcome to a culinary journey where every bite is a symphony of flavor and craftsmanship. Our Homemade Smoked Brisket Cheeseburger recipe is a testament to the art of barbecue, elevating the humble burger to a gourmet delight. What sets this recipe apart is the use of freshly ground beef, where you have full control over the quality and origin of your meat. Unlike store-bought ground beef of uncertain origins, grinding your own beef ensures that you know exactly where your ingredients come from, guaranteeing freshness and quality.

The star of this recipe is the brisket, renowned for its rich, beefy flavor and tender texture. Compared to commercial ground beef, brisket offers a depth of flavor that elevates every bite, tantalizing your taste buds with its savory goodness.

To further enhance the flavor profile of our brisket burgers, we turn to our Texas Beef BBQ Rub. This signature blend of spices, carefully crafted to perfection, adds a symphony of smoky, savory, and slightly sweet notes to our burgers. With each bite, you’ll experience the perfect balance of flavors that only the finest barbecue rub can provide. So, fire up the grill and get ready to experience the ultimate indulgence in homemade burgers with our Smoked Brisket Cheeseburger recipe.

Servings 6 Burgers


  • 2 pounds brisket trimmings
  • 2 Tablespoons Revolution Barbecue Texas Beef BBQ Rub
  • 6 slices sharp cheddar cheese
  • 6 burger buns
  • 1 red onion sliced
  • ¼ cup pickled jalapenos
  • burger toppings like lettuce, tomato, pickles, and mayo on these burgers


  • Ensure both the brisket trimmings and the meat grinder are really cold. Place the grinder parts in the freezer if possible.
  • Grind the brisket trimmings in a meat grinder. Start with the larger grind, then run them through a smaller grinder.
  • Form the ground brisket into 6 equal-sized patties, about ⅓ pound each. If you don’t have a meat grinder, your local butcher can grind the meat for you.

  • Season both sides of the beef patties with the Revolution Barbecue Texas Beef BBQ Rub.
  • Place the seasoned brisket patties on the grill grates of the preheated smoker. Close the lid and smoke for approximately 1 hour, or until the burger’s internal temperature reaches 135°F.
  • Top each ground brisket patty with a slice of sharp cheddar cheese. Close the lid and continue smoking until the meat reaches your desired internal doneness and the cheese is melted.
  • Toast the buns if desired, then place the brisket burger on the bottom bun.
  • Top with sliced onions, pickled jalapenos, and any other desired toppings.
  • Add the top toasted bun and serve.
