This recipe is from an ol' friend, Kevin The BBQGURU at RecipeGoldmine.com. Be sure to read Kevin's tips before you start. * The process needs to be started the night before. Oven time is estimated depending on the size of the brisket used. Wonderful with Recipe#254973, fresh rye bread, horseradish and Recipe#15843. March 2012 UPDATE: by the photo you can see the beauty of this corned beef brisket. I decided to add a 1/2 bottle of Guinness Draught before closing up the foil and braising for the final few hours. You might like to try this too! The flavor. with or without the beer will knock your socks off, even if you are not wearing any! Soaking the brisket in water makes a huge difference and you will not miss the salty flavor. The rub will more than make up for it. Man oh man, this is good stuff!
