    1. 1
      You are going to need a large pit BBQ with a cover to completely cook outside- or you can finish this off in the oven.
    2. 2
      Completely cover the brisket with the steak seasoning- don't be stingy- and pat in well or"rub" as we do here in Texas.
    3. 3
      Seasoning layer should be thick.
    4. 4
      Place brisket over coals located on one end of pit or in BBQ and sear all sides of brisket, watching for flame ups, for 2 hours.
    5. 5
      Use heavy duty foil and completely wrap brisket, placing in a pan that brisket fits comfortably Move pan to the side of the pit without the coals- or to your oven, set at 325 degrees- and let cook for 3 hours, replacing coals to keep temp in your pit at about 325-350 degrees.
    6. 6
      Remove pan and let brisket set for 15-20 minutes before slicing.
    7. 7
      Be sure that you slice against the grain of the brisket or it will be tough.
    8. 8
      There will be lots of wonderful au jus in the foil, be sure to pass that with your brisket and serve with pintos, cornbread and slaw.

      This is a great way to cook brisket, but please don't call it BBQ. I am THE past master of Southwest Texas Bar-B-que and I have been doing it for over 50 years now and have fed as many as 200 at a time. They end up putting my BBQ sauce all over everything on their plate and sop it all up with their bread. Warren
