The college and professional football season is in full swing and that means it’s time to step up your tailgate grilling game.  Here’s a recipe that’s sure to kick your day in to gear, combining canned biscuits, smoked cheddar cheese and cubed leftover brisket to create something I like to call Briscuits.



  • 1 can store bought biscuits
  • 2 tbsp. of your favorite barbecue dry rub
  • 2 cups cubed brisket
  • 2 cups smoked cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup of your favorite barbecue sauce

Extra tools needed:  1 pizza stone

Prepare a chimney of Kingsford Original Charcoal.  Once the charcoal is 70 percent ashed over and glowing red, spread it evenly across the bottom of the grill.  Add Kingsford Smokehouse Briquets to the charcoal for a deep, smoky flavor and close the bottom vents by 1/3 for medium-high heat cooking (approximately 350 degrees).

Place pizza stone on the grill, close lid, and allow to heat while you prepare the briscuits.  Place canned biscuits on to a greased baking pan leaving 1 inch between them on all sides.  Press 3-4 cubes of brisket and 3-4 cubes of smoked cheddar in to the uncooked biscuits.  Sprinkle with dry rub and place the baking pan on the pizza stone.  Cover the grill and allow the biscuits to cook for 14-17 minutes until golden brown.  Remove the briscuits from the grill, drizzle barbecue sauce over the tops and serve immediately.
