How to Make Coca Cola Smokehouse Barbecued Brisket


  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. While heating oil, season brisket liberally with salt, black pepper and granulated garlic.
    Brown brisket in skillet about 4 to 5 minutes per side: transfer to large covered casserole or Dutch oven.
  2. Deglaze skillet with beef broth, scraping bottom of pan. Add onion, red pepper flakes and liquid smoke. When onion is translucent, add 1/2 cup Coca Cola. Pour mixture over meat: sprinkle with 2 Tbsp brown sugar.
  3. Braise brisket 5 to 6 hours, basting every 1/2 hour. When falling apart, remove meat: set aside to cool slightly and add remaining 2 Tbsp brown sugar, tomato puree, 1 can Coca Cola, onion powder, hot pepper sauce and Worcestershire sauce to Dutch oven. Increase heat to 400 degrees F and cook, uncovered, 30 minutes. When cool enough, slice meat into 1/2 inch slices. Return brisket to Dutch oven and baste with sacue. Lower heat to 250 degrees F, and cook 30 minutes more. Serve as is or on rolls.
