Grilling Corned Beef Brisket

Alright all you grillers ... DH wants to grill a corned beef brisket tomorrow rather than put it into the slow cooker. I did a search on line and found a site that said to rinse it then in-direct grill. Another said to wrap it in a foil pouch and in-direct grill for 4 - 5 hours. All well and good but I would really like a tried and true method please ... Ideas?
Thanks!

At BBQ competitions, brisket is slow cooked for around 12 hours. That's necessary to tenderize a very tough piece of meat. This is also why it's traditionally simmered in seasoned water for hours.

I wold not just straight up grill it. So if it is actually corned beef that means it has been pickled. If that is the case then crust it in pepper corns and smoke it and you will have some good pastrami. On the other hand if it is not pickled just smoke it low and slow over some hardwood for a long time.

you cannot grill brisket if you want to eat it. You can braise it (water) or smoke it (low and slow) . The braise is about 3 hrs. The smoking is about 6 depending on weight and thickness.

Maybe you could marinate it and then grill wrapped tightly in foil over indirect heat, but it would have to cook a long time.

brisket can't be successfully grilled. The instructions you posted sounded like they were trying to say that in the kindest way possible.

You can smoke it, but that also takes hours and hours... longer actually than braising it.
