Prepare pellet grill for indirect cooking at 250°F using GMG Fruitwood Pellets for fuel and smoke. You can cook this recipe on any pit just use the recommended cooking temperature.
Trim sinew and excess fat from brisket flat and season heavily with Killer Hogs TX Brisket Rub.
Place brisket flat on pit and cook until the outer surface develops a mahogany/dark color.
Cube the brisket into bite-size portions and place in a large aluminum pan. To the pan add chopped onion, garlic, sliced mushrooms, tomato paste, thyme, beef consume, Guinness beer, and Worcestershire sauce. Cover the pan with foil and place back on the pit.
Check the brisket bites after 2 hours for softness. When you can squeeze them and they almost fall apart, they’re done.
Remove the pan from the pit and carefully separate the brisket chunks from the drippings in the pan. Discard any pieces of thyme stems at this point.
Combine the brisket drippings with the brown gravy (just mix a brown gravy packet with water and heat until it starts to thicken). Pour this gravy mixture over the brisket chunks and gently fold so everything is covered.
Spoon the brisket chunks into a large cast-iron skillet (we use the Skillet Hack) and top with mashed potatoes.
Add the parmesan and shredded cheddar to the top, garnish with a little chopped parsley and place back on the pit. At this point, crank the heat up to 350°F.
Once the cheese has melted and the top has started to brown it’s done. Carefully remove from the grill and serve.
