BBQ Beef Brisket

Dee Schimmel


No one has ever turned away from my BBQ brisket and always ask for seconds ! If there is any left over we make sandwiches the next day. I have included the instrutions for oven and crock pot cooking. The one in the picture I made yesterday in the oven. This is before adding extra sauce. I prefer to let everyone do that themselves. I chose to serve it with yellow mustard potato salad, baked beans, and crunchy garlic bread. We had home made ice cream for dessert.

How to Make BBQ Beef Brisket


  • 1Combine rub ingredients in a small bowl.
  • 2Rub into brisket on both sides using all of mix.
  • 3Place meat into 6 qt slow cooker or heavy cast iron dutch oven. (I use an oval one)
  • 4Combine sauce ingredients in a seperate container and pour 1/2 over brisket. Save the rest for serving.
  • 5Cover meat and bake at 350 for 4 to 5 hours until meat is tender or in crockpot/slowcooker on high for 5 hours or until tender. (I have had to cook it in crock pot as much as 8 hours depending on meat)
  • 6Serve with reserved sauce. In the past I have added more sweetener to reserved sauce for table use.
