Preparing and Cooking the Brisket

Step 1 - In a mortar and pestle add the salt and the pepper and grind to a 1mm chunks
Step 2 - Add the coffee and the sugar to the mix and run all over the brisket, making sure its a nice generous coating, if required make more to ensure complete coating of the meat, and leave in a sealed container in the fridge for 2-4 hours
Step 3 - Light your smoker, i use a Ceramic Kamado BBQ (Char-Griller Kamado) typically i use a lump wood charcoal + Cherry Wood chunks
In this cooking season i used roughly 2kg of charcoal, 6-8 chucks of cherry wood.
# Tip when lighting your smoker only use softwoods (pine off cuts un-treated wood) and paper never use any lighter fluid, or petroleum products as these will leave a bad taste in your smoker that will spoil the meat.
Step 4 - Once the smoker is alight, and up to temp, in this cooking season i want the oven to be between 150°c -  200°c for the entire time, place the meat in the middle of the smoker and close the lid and adjust the vents to maximise the smoke retention in your smoker and check the smoker every 15 minutes to ensure the temperature is constant and you have a good amount of smoke being retained. 
Step 5 - after 2.5 hours - 3 hours a piece of meat this size should be ready (45 minutes per 500 grams of meat give or take depending on the rare - medium rare - well done), you want to place the meat in a sealed container to rest for 15 - 20 minutes
Step 6 - Slice the meat using a long flat blade, in to 1 - 2mm thick slices and assemble your buns with how you like. For us this is the meat at the bottom, then the coleslaw on top.
