Preparation

When ready to cook, set the Traeger to 375℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.

Salt and pepper the onions and peppers. Cook on a sheet pan in the Traeger until translucent, about 14-20 minutes.

While peppers are cooking, drain the tomatoes and kidney beans and add them to a 10-inch cast iron pot. Drain half of the juice out of the pinto beans and add to pot.

Add chili powder, kosher salt, ground pepper, onion powder and garlic powder to the pot and mix together.

Cut the brisket into 1-inch cubes and add to the pot. Add cooked peppers and onions and mix together. Add water as needed.

Turn the grill temperature down to 250℉ and cook for 4 hours, stirring every 30 minutes. Add water as needed during the cooking process.

After 4 hours, taste and add more salt and pepper as needed.

Top chili with sour cream, chives and Fritos. Enjoy!
