If you don't have a smoker to make brisket, the oven is a good second choice. An easy way to make this is to set the oven to 225 degrees and let the brisket cook overnight or while you're at work. It makes a nice au jus you can prepare "BBQ French Dips" with, or just slice it and serve it with Cajun Coleslaw (#117204).

  6. Remove the brisket to a platter and pour the pan juices into a sauce pan and reduce over a high heat by one half.
