  • Cooking Directions

    Combine seasoning ingredients in a food processor until evenly distributed. Season raw brisket on both sides with brisket rub seasoning and then place in your roasting pan.

    Roast for 1 hour at 350 degrees. Add enough liquid to the roasting pan to achieve 1/2 inch liquid in the pan. Now cover the roasting pan and lower heat to 325 degrees. Continue cooking for 4 - 5 hours, depending on size, basting frequently. Internal temperature of 185 degrees will indicate a fully cooked brisket.

    Trim all fat and slice meat thinly across the grain. Sauce:

    For Sauce, combine all ingredients in a saucepan and simmer over low heat for 25 minutes. Puree in a blender or food processor.
