Barbecue Beef Brisket; tender brisket, thinly sliced, richly spiced, swimming in a rich, smokey barbecue sauce.

Nothing speaks my love language like a drippy, tangy, juicy and flavorful brisket! How about you?

Growing up, barbecue beef brisket was my favorite dinner (besides spaghetti!!); my mom would  make brisket and buy fresh homemade Italian rolls from a local deli and we’d pile the tender brisket high on the rolls and drench it in barbecue sauce. It was the best, most delicious and definitely, the messiest meal. E.V.E.R!!

It’s best if you get it started the night before to allow the spices to work their way into the meat, however; that said I’ve been known to hurry the process and do it the day of, okay, it’s because I forgot, okay!?! The flavor is still good, so it can be done, but it’s superior if you do it the night before! Just saying…

The night before…

….start by lining a sheet pan with heavy duty aluminum foil enough to wrap and make a “pouch” around the brisket, lay your brisket in the middle of the foil.

How to make a Dry Rub for Beef

In a small bowl mix together your spices to make a rub, sprinkle evenly over meat and rub into both sides of the meat. It’s really that simple!

Then pour the Worcestershire sauce and liquid smoke (found near the Worcestershire sauce in the grocery store) over the meat, lifting the meat as it drips to the sides so that you get this good stuff under the meat as well as on top.

Roll down the foil to create a pocket and place foil wrapped meat on plate or pan in fridge to marinate overnight.

The next day, about 6-7 hours from serving

Allow brisket to come to room temperature for 30-60 minutes before baking. Pour on 1/2 cup of real orange juice and seal the foil back up.

Preheat your oven to 275° and bake the foil wrapped brisket on a sheet pan for 5 hours.

Carefully remove meat from oven and open foil packet, carefully (watch the steam) pour 1 cup of your favorite barbecue sauce over the meat. This is our favorite store bought sauce and but you’ve got to try this Homemade Rocky Mountain Barbecue Sauce. Return to the oven, keeping foil open and bake for an additional hour.

When ready to eat; remove brisket from oven and allow to sit, covered for 15-20 minutes before slicing.

Carefully move brisket from foil to cutting board and thinly slice. My dad always sliced our brisket with an electric knife, so I’m partial to using one as it brings back fond memories of him!

Drizzle with juices from foil packet and serve with additional warmed barbecue sauce. Serve with rolls for sandwiches or with a crisp salad and these amazing and simple roasted rosemary red potatoes!

Prepping the Brisket

Instructions

  1. Starting the night before, line a baking sheet with heavy duty aluminum foil, enough to wrap and make a "pouch" around the brisket, lay your brisket in the middle of the foil.
  2. In a small bowl mix together your spices to make a rub, sprinkle evenly over meat and rub into both sides of the meat. Pour the Worcestershire sauce and liquid smoke evenly over the meat, lifting the meat as it drips to the sides so that you get this good stuff under the meat as well as on top.

  3. Return to the oven, keeping foil open and bake for an additional hour. Remove brisket from oven and allow to sit for 15-20 minutes. Carefully move brisket from foil to cutting board and slice thinly. Drizzle with juices from foil packet and serve with additional warmed barbecue sauce.
  4. Serve with rolls for sandwiches or with a crisp salad and these amazing and simple rosemary red potatoes! Pass out the napkins, tie on a bib, get your fingers messy and ENJOY!

Notes

It's best if you get it started the night before to allow the spices to work their way into the meat, however; that said I've been known to hurry the process and do it the day of as early as possible and allow as much time for it to marinate the meat as possible before cooking.
