Do you have a recipe for beef brisket on a propane grill?

Would it create a fall apart brisket if I did this recipe on grill instead of in crock pot?
Crockpot Peppered Beef Brisket in Beer Recipe
- 1 (4 lb) beef brisket (with fat)
- 1 large yellow onion, chopped
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp Kosher salt
- 3 tbls brown sugar
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 3/4 cup beer
-2/3 cup chili sauce

In a small bowl, combine salt, pepper, paprika and cumin. Evenly rub the mixed spices. Place onions in slow cooker. Place brisket halves over onions. In a small bowl, brown sugar and garlic and gradually add beer and chili sauce, stirring until well blended. Pour over brisket. Cover with lid and cook on high setting for 1 hour then reduce to low setting and cook 6-8 hours our until tender.

TIP: To make serving sizes easier to dish out, cut the brisket into 12 evenly sliced pieces after rubbing with seasonings and before putting in the slow cooker.

I'm with ChefOno. You could do a rub, then start your brisket on the grill, but you'd have to finish it in the oven, in a sealed aluminum foil packet or other sealed vessel. The meat needs to be at 200ish degrees for an hour or so to dissolve the collagen so you have that fall-apart texture instead of a tough cut of meat.

Brisket benefits from low and slow cooking; that's how the "fall apart" quality is achieved. Typical methods are smoking and braising. Your recipe is a braise (low heat in a moist environment). You *could* use your grill for this recipe, provided you utilized some sort of covered vessel and could regulate the heat to between 225F and 300F but there would be no advantage over using your oven.
