I've never had a problem getting a solid 1/4" or more smoke ring on my briskets. Consider using a smoker tube. I was never satisfied with enough smoke flavor with my Traeger until someone suggested the pellet tube. I also put my brisket (or anything else I want to have a heavier smoke flavor) on the grill earlier than recommended. I put it on the grill right away so when the initial smoke starts the meat is really getting engulfed with all that smoke. Good luck, don't give up on it because it will give a great smoke ring.CAN NOT OBTAIN A SMOKE RING ON MY BRISKET
Hello everyone and thank you for helping me out here.
I have been cooking briskets for many years on my offset smoker.
I do a lot if cooking for the church and have cooked as many as 14 briskets at one time and have never had a problem with obtaining a smoke ring.
I purchased my new Traeger Ironwood 885 in May 2021 and since then I have cooked 4 briskets.
The reason I purchased a Traeger is that I needed something a little bit more easy on my body as cooking for 12- 15 hours would just wear me out.
I have tried everything (Water Pan, Super Smoke at 210 degrees, prepping my brisket the night before and place it cold inside the Traeger, Very light on the Rub, Using Traeger Oak or Hickory Pellets))
Any advice would be great please as I miss not seeing the smoke ring and more of the smoky flavor in my brisket
