This has long been a favorite at my house. It's good sliced, or if it's very tender, you can shred it and put it in sandwiches. Note there is a 24 hour time period in which the brisket has to marinate and it takes five hours to bake it.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Thanks to cooking this low and slow, the meat was so tender it shredded in a snap. Before I even tasted a bite, I knew it was going to be good from the aroma coming from my oven. This BBQ sauce is amazing too. It may become a staple in my fridge. All the flavors work so well together in this dish. Great for a cookout, tailgating... so many options.

Step-By-Step

3Cover the pan with aluminum foil, stick it in the refrigerator, and keep it there for 24 hours.
4The next day, preheat the oven to 275 degrees F.
5Remove the brisket from the refrigerator, and drain the liquid.
6Place a baking rack inside a dish large enough to hold the brisket and bake for FIVE hours.
7Remove the brisket from the oven and trim off the excess fat.
8MAKE THE BBQ SAUCE:
Place all the ingredients in a large saucepan.
9Turn on the stovetop to medium heat and cook the sauce for 30 minutes.
10FINIISHING THE BRISKET:
