1. Two days before you're ready to smoke the brisket, place the (trimmed) corned beef into a large stock pot of cold water and pop into the fridge to draw out all that excess salt they cure it with. (*You must do this or it will be too salty in the end).
2. The next day (day #2), in small to medium-sized bowl, combine well all of the spices. Remove the corned beef from the water and place meat side-up onto a baking sheet. Coat meaty side and sides with a thick layer of the spice mixture using about half of it. Place onto sprayed smoker rack that has been placed onto another (clean) baking sheet, placing brisket meaty side-down. Coat top and spots missed with rest of rub mixture patting on thickly. Refrigerate overnight, uncovered. (Don't worry, it won't dry out).
3. The day of smoking (day #3): Fill smoker bin with wood chips, prepping if needed according to your smoker. (We used half mesquite and half apple). Add water to the water pan, or as per your smoker's directions, and preheat to 225º F. Let prepared corned beef sit out at room temp while smoker is heating up. (Ours takes about 30 - 40 minutes to preheat). *If yours comes with a meat thermometer, insert probe into thickest part of meat on end of brisket nearest to side of smoker where you'll plug it in. Or just make sure it will reach.
4. When smoker is heated, quickly place prepared corned beef already on smoker rack, (fat side-up just as you already have it) into smoker, plug in thermometer, close door, program smoker, and smoke until internal temperature of brisket reaches 190º F.
