Mom's Barbecued Beef Brisket

Marinate a beef brisket in 2 oz. Liquid Smoke, a few dashes of worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, and onion, garlic and celery salts. Marinate overnight.

Place marinated brisket in a covered roasting pan in a 275 oven. Cook 5 hours. Uncover and pour 6 oz. barbecue sauce over and baste every 15 minutes. Cook one hour longer.

This crowd-pleasing meat will make wonderful sandwiches or will make a great main dish for picnics or potlucks.

I love a good brisket & will try this method. I usually do a dry rub and let it set overnight. If you want to try it, it's basically a mix of Garlic powder, Lawry's seasoning salt, Chili powder, Cumin, Cayenne, Black Pepper, and Paprika. Just liberally pat all over the meat and then wrap the brisket in aluminum want it sealed up tight, so it leaks as little as possible. The next day, I slow roast like you do, still tightly wrapped in the foil. I peel back the foil for the last 1/2 hour and baste with BBQ sauce.
