Fire your smoker back up because we aren’t stopping with smoked brisket and burnt ends! Reserve some of that prized cut of beef for these tangy, buttery, savory Smoked Brisket Sliders. You will want to bookmark this one because the aioli alone is going to make you a bbq legend.
Smoked Brisket Sliders
We’ve been cooking up all the brisket lately, and with it, all of the brisket recipes! I think this was one of my favorites, and I can’t wait for you to try them.
A good smoked brisket is an event in and of itself, around here, but I’ll never smoke another one where I don’t reserve a good chunk of it for these sliders.

How to make Brisket Sliders
This is just the overview so you can see what you’re actually getting into here. When you are cooking, you’ll want to use the full recipe at the bottom of the page.
Preheat your pellet grill (or oven)
225ish is the goal here.
Slice the rolls
Ideally, your rolls will be the stuck-together kind that isn’t pre-sliced. Think, the kind you would serve for Thanksgiving dinner, pull apart, and then slice in half to slather butter on. So, slice those all in half without separating the individual rolls. Place the bottom into a pan that’s been lined with parchment paper or non-stick foil.
Mix the aioli and build the sandwiches
Put your mayo and the White Tuxedo into a bowl and mix to combine.
If you can’t wait to get yours in the mail, you can sub in mayo + a splash of white vinegar + a teaspoon or two of prepared horseradish (or to taste) plus salt and pepper. Honestly, just order that rub though you are going to freak at how great it is.
So, spread the aioli over the bottom of the rolls and load up with brisket. Top with tons of smoked cheddar cheese, another smear of aioli on the bread tops, and put the tops back on the rolls to form the sliders.
Make the buttery blend
This part is not optional. This is not the time to make sacrifices to save calories if the slathering of aioli and cheese is any indication. Don’t skip the buttery topping! Mix it together and brush it all over the tops of the rolls. If you have extra, keep brushing. It is totally okay to let it drizzle down the sides too.
Toss that pan into the oven or back on your pre-heated pellet grill. Whatever you turned on in step 1. 😉 Let them cook for 25-30 minutes, or until everything is melty and the tops are starting to brown. If you need to hold them over for a little bit, cover them with tin foil. Can be reheated as well, covered. Great to feed a crowd!
