Traeger Brisket-Style London Broil

You know smoked brisket, and love it. But sometimes you don’t want to spend 14-16+ hours on one dinner, and that’s okay. You’ve met our much beloved Trisket too, but have you heard about our Traeger Brisket-Style London Broil, aka the London Broilsket yet?? I didn’t think so.

Smoked Brisket-Style London Broil Recipe

We’re on a London Broil kick lately, and I’m not sorry. The last one we did was a traditional marinated London Broil, but we cranked it up and cooked it on the grill instead of on the broiler in our Traeger Marinated and Grilled London Broil recipe.

Well, there were 3 other roasts/steaks in that pack and the rest of them got marinated or dry rubbed like this one that got the brisket treatment, with much success.

Dry Rub

The day before you want to cook, rub the London Broil liberally with the coffee rub, wrap in plastic wrap, and let it dry brine overnight.



Preheat your pellet grill to 225°.


Smoke it

Put the London Broil on the smoker and let it cook until it is 160° internal temperature. Next, wrap it with butcher’s paper or tin foil, and put it back on the grill to cook until 205°.



Let the wrapped London Broil rest for 30-60 minutes before slicing.

Smoked London Broilsket FAQ

How do you store leftovers?

These are best kept wrapped in an airtight container for 3-4 days, max.

What’s the best way to reheat leftovers?

Sous vide is the BEST way, but we’ve done these on the stovetop or even in the microwave in a pinch too.

Are there any substitutions for the coffee rub?

Yup! If you don’t like coffee rub, don’t have any, or just don’t want to use it, you can sub in your favorite all-purpose or beef-centric bbq rub just fine. You can also go right to a salt, pepper, garlic blend and it’ll be delicious.

How many hours about will this take? And do I need to flip it?

I'm not sure how many hours. You should always cook to temp and never to time. Time will depend a lot on the specific cut of beef, the weather, how often the grill is opened, and a bunch of factors. A very very loose ballpark would be 5-6 hours, but it could be a couple more more or a couple less than that.
