This is my mom's recipe for brisket. It's really flavorful and so tender--the overnight time to marinate it is worth it!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix ingredients and cover both sides of meat.
  2. Wrap in foil and seal.
  3. Marinate overnight in refrigerator.
  4. Bake in 300°F oven for 5 hours, or at 275°F for 6 hours.
  5. May cover with barbecue sauce during last hour, leaving uncovered.

Awesome!!! Used about 3lb brisket. No celery seeds so used celery salt. Marinated for 3 hours in foil the 1st time I made this and all night this time. Cooked at 270 for 5 hours, added bottle of Masterpiece hickory brown sugar bbq sauce and cooked for 1 more hour. This could not be any better. Today we shredded it and served on Hawaiin buns. I will not cook brisket any other way now! Thanks!!!

So good!! I had an 10 lb brisket..I didnt measure either. I just threw in soy sauce, garlic pwdr and worchestershire. Marinated all night, and then when I woke up, I cooked them..One half in the crockpot; on low and the other half in the oven, 275' from 7am until 5pm-ish...I flipped the brisket over a few times throughout the day, to keep it juicy. At 5ish, I covered the peices with KC Masterpeice. Served w baked potatoes, fruit salad and hawaiian rolls. (Made really great sandwiches) Yum yum yum!! My 7 yr old even had seconds! This will be my new brisket recipe!! Thanks!

First time making brisket. This one was easy to do and had great flavors. Great served with coleslaw, baked beans and horseradish sauce.
