READY IN: 3hrs 30mins




  • Soak the beef for about 30 minutes per pound and no less than 2 hours. You can do this overnight. You also need to change the water a couple times and rinse the corned beef off when you change the water.
  • Place the seasonings in a pan to warm then grind them.
  • Rub this on the rinsed and dried corned beef brisket.
  • Corned beef is frequently sold with a spice packet you can use it in place of the spices I have listed. You want it to get deep inside so the flavors will spread.
  • Braise:
  • Rinse and simmer your corned beef for 1 hour. Hopefully in Guinness and some carrots, onions, and parsnips. ;) .
  • Remove meat and place on paper towels to dry. Lightly spread olive oil over corned beef. Being careful not the burn your hands.
  • The liquid can be use for potaoes.
  • Grill:
  • (Placing on the grill gives you smokiness and lightly browned while basting with the glaze.).
  • Over high heat sear the simmered beef over high heat just to get grill marks.
  • Remove to indirect heat with a drip pan below it. You can add some beer to the drip pan for some steaming.
  • You want to grill your corned beef for about 1 to 2 hours at a low temperature of 250 degrees F.
  • Charcoal and hardwoods will give you better flavors but you can use a gas grill. Over indirect heat and use a drip pan under the corned beef. Grill until the internal temperature of the meat reached more than 165 degrees F.
  • Meanwhile prepare Glaze:
  • Mix the glaze ingredients together.
  • Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil.
  • Spread over cooked meat then proceed with cooking.
  • Baste the corned beef every 30 minutes.
  • Remove and let sit 10 minutes before slicing.
  • Pop open a stout and serve with your favorite Irish sides.
