DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
  • Completely cover the brisket with the steak seasoning- don't be stingy- and pat in well or"rub" as we do here in Texas.
  • Seasoning layer should be thick.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Remove pan and let brisket set for 15-20 minutes before slicing.
  • Be sure that you slice against the grain of the brisket or it will be tough.
  • 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.
