Blackstone Brisket Tacos

If you’ve got leftover brisket, these crispy Blackstone Brisket Tacos are the perfect way to use it up! Give the brisket a quick season and sear on the griddle and then sandwich it inside a tortilla with copious amounts of cheese and let it crisp up in some avocado oil on the Blackstone griddle.

Blackstone Brisket Tacos

If you ever find yourself with some leftover brisket (I know, that’s an oxymoron in some parts), we’ve got just the thing for you! Brisket tacos are simple to put together, and cooking them on your Blackstone makes them FAST too, even for a crowd.

If you don’t have leftover brisket, you can also sub in your favorite leftover roast beef, prime rib, pulled pork, or pulled beef too.

Just don’t forget the cheese. Copious amounts of cheese. 😉

How to make Blackstone Brisket Tacos

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.


Save some brisket

I know, this is the hard part, but buy big and ask questions later. You’ll want to ideally use leftover smoked brisket like you’d get with our Traeger Smoked Brisket Recipe, but I’m not going to yell at you if it is from the local bbq join, or heaven forbid, your oven.



Chop up your brisket into bite-sized pieces and sprinkle on your favorite taco seasoning. I really like this Sayulita Street Taco blend from The Spice Guy! Go ahead and cut up any toppings you are going to want now too. We like lettuce, tomato, avocado, sour cream, salsa, and hot sauce. These tacos go fast, so it is best to have everything ready to go as soon as they come off the griddle.



Medium-low is about right for these Brisket Tacos. Let it preheat for at least 10-15 minutes.



Assemble your avocado oil, tortillas, meat, cheese, the tray you’ll put the cooked tacos on, your spatulas and hot pads, and have a “runner” nearby if you have one available. I’m always needing someone to grab me a beverage or another paper plate or paper towels or whatever else I forgot.

Put down a thin layer of avocado oil followed by your tortillas, cheese on all of the tortilla, and some meat on half. Fold the taco over once the cheese starts to melt, and cook on both sides until they are browned and crispy. Repeat until all are cooked.



Serve with all the fixings, and bonus points for my homemade smoked salsa verde, bean dip, and Instant Pot Mexican Rice!
