Rinse brisket and pat dry. Place directly on the grill grate and smoke for 2 hours.
Increase grill temperature to 325℉ and preheat, lid closed.
Remove brisket from grill and place in a roasting pan. Sprinkle seasoning packet on top. Pour chicken stock and dark beer over the roast and into the pan.
Cover roasting pan with foil and place on the grill. Cook for 2 1/2 hours or until beef is fork tender.
Remove foil and add carrots and potatoes to the roasting pan. Cover meat and vegetables with garlic salt and butter slices.
Recover with foil and cook for an additional 20 minutes or until carrots and potatoes are just tender. Add cabbage, cover and return to grill for 20 minutes more.
Remove vegetables from the pan to a bowl or serving platter. Slice beef and serve with potatoes, cabbage and carrots.
Garnish with fresh dill and thyme if desired. Enjoy!
