In this Memphis Grill Review, Señor Smoke at Curto’s is told by an employee at Memphis Grills that YES, you can fit a water pan under your brisket, with the help of the Memphis small grate kit accessory. This is a game-changer, providing that much-needed moisture boost in the cook chamber!
The Memphis Pellet Grill delivered the goods as I made a brisket in the style of Aaron Franklin. Check out this Memphis Grill review as I detail how the smoke went.
We held our annual Smoke n Sear fest 2 weeks ago and I was charged with making the brisket.
Instead of trying to go wild with some exotic rub/brine/injection solution I decided to go lo-fi and attempt to dial in the Aaron Franklin method.
This would call for nothing but good beef, smoke and salt and then eventually wrapping the brisket in butcher paper to ensure moistness.
The butcher paper is a dramatic improvement over foil (i.e. the Texas Crutch) b/c it is more porous and allows the brisket to breathe.
I decided to use the Memphis wood fire Pro Grill and cooked at 225 for an estimated 12 hours, then I would wrap for two hours and keep in the cooler before serving. I sued Mesquite Traeger pellets and used a pan filled with beer insider the smoke chamber to keep it moist.
Well, things changed along the way, so check out the video to see what happened.

I’ve been putting the Memphis wood-fired grill through the paces for over a year now so it’s about time that I wax poetic about this incredible product. I s&# you not…out of all of the products we sell, encompassing outdoor as well as major appliances, I can say without hesitation that the Memphis grill is my favorite. It’s beautiful, revolutionary and it actually works!
We just delivered our first 3 of the new Memphis Wood-Fired Grills, one of which ended up in Manhattan.
Within 48 hours after delivery this new Memphis owner not only smoked a chicken directly on the grates but dove right in the deep end and cooked a 9-hour brisket.
Take a look at this pic:
This is the brisket cooked on a new Memphis wood-fired pellet grill. Check out that smoke ring – competition worthy!
That smoke ring is crazy! According to the owner the approach was very simple:
“I applied a rub with some olive oil and let it sit overnight in the fridge.
It took around 9 hours at 225 to get the (meat) probe to 190. Then I left it for another 2 hours at 185f. Delicious!”
The only criticism our NYC Memphis owner had was that the new Wifi app seemed to quit at around the 8th hour of cooking. I’m wondering if this was related to the wifi signal at the point where the grill was located. Perhaps it was weak? I’ve already contacted my liasion at MemphWe will continue to monitor this situation.
The Memphis Grill may be my favorite grill out of the plethora of grills and smokers that we sell. Remember, calling a Memphis a grill is really a disservice.
This product can smoke, sear, bake, roast and do anything else you want it to.
