How To Make texas style barbecued beef brisket

  • 1
    Lightly grease a 6 quart slow cooker; add onion and garlic.
  • 2
    Stir together the chili powder and the next 5 ingredients. Rub over the brisket; place the brisket over the onion mixture in the slow cooker.
  • 3
    Whisk together beer and chili sauce. Slowly pour the mixture around the brisket (to avoid removing spices from the brisket).
  • 4
    Cover and cook on low for 7 to 8 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours, or until fork tender. Uncover and let stand in the slow cooker for 20 minutes.
  • 5
    Remove the brisket from the slow cooker; cut brisket across the grain into thin slices. Return brisket to the slow cooker, and spoon the pan juices over the meat.
