How to Cook Brisket


There are many different ways to cook a beef brisket. Southerners prefer their brisket smoked, while out West oven-roasting is the preferred method. Whichever way you cook your brisket, here are a few simple suggestions to ensure that your brisket is tender and juicy.

  • Trim your brisket of the fat you can easily get to, as marinades and brisket rubs can't be absorbed through the fat.

  • Place the brisket in a shallow dish and pour your favorite marinade over the brisket. Cover and put in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, or overnight.

  • Remove the brisket from the marinade and place it on a large plate. Rub the brisket with a mix of sprices, such as salt, pepper, onion powder and parsley flakes.

  • Put the brisket on the grill (over very low heat), covered, or in a smoker for 12 to 15 hours. Check the brisket every hour or so to make the heat level is consistent. Or roast the brisket in a preheated 275 degree F. oven for approximately 6 to 8 hours.

  • Let the cooked brisket stand for 5 to 10 minutes before slicing.

Tips & Warnings

  • Leftover cooked brisket can be shredded and used the next day for barbecue beef sandwiches. Simply pour barbecue sauce over the shredded beef and serve on deli rolls or hamburger buns.
  • Make sure you don't overcook your beef brisket, or cook it at too high a temperature, as this will cause the meat to dry out and become tough.
