Total Time
Serves: 10
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons dry mustard
  • 1 bay leaf, crushed
  • 4 pounds beef brisket, USDA choice trimmed
  • 1½ cups beef stock or broth
  1. Remove meat from fridge and allow it warm up, approximately 20 - 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  3. Combine all the spices, including the bay leaf to make your delicious rub. Season the raw brisket on both sides with the rub.
  4. Place in a roasting pan or dutch oven and roast, uncovered, for 1 hour.
  5. Add beef stock to pan to get you approximately a ½ inch of liquid in the roasting pan. Add water to get to the ½ inch if necessary. Do not pour the liquid on top of your brisket however or you risk loosing the delicious rub!
  6. Lower oven to 250 degrees F, cover pan tightly and continue cooking approximately 2 to 3 hours, or until fork-tender. Keep a close eye on as the cooking time can really vary. Temperature wise you are looking for a range of 195 to 205 degrees. Mine was about 200 and turned out amazing.
  7. Trim the fat and slice meat thinly across the grain. Top with juice from the pan.
