1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 Tablespoon Traeger Beef Rub
1 Teaspoon Traeger Chicken Rub
1 Teaspoon Traeger Blackened Saskatchewan Rub

Increase grill temperature to 225℉ and place brisket back on grill 4-5 hours until the internal temperature of the meat reaches 204℉.
Remove from the grill and let it rest for at least 30 minutes before slicing against the grain. Serve with your favorite Traeger BBQ sauce. Enjoy!
