This is a great dish for New Year’s Eve or the day before a party because you can cook ahead and serve in a chaffer. Enjoy the party!!!
The secret to tender brisket is slow cooking in the oven with a marinade of your choice. Even a bottle of beer can make a brisket delicious and tender. After cooking, you may put it on the pit to get the smoked char on the outside or just serve straight from the oven. You can put it in the fridge overnight and slice it the next day and reheat in the oven. But, remember, the brisket is a tricky cut of meat and you must slice across the grain if you want slices. If not, you can pull the meat and serve it as “pulled brisket.” Either way, it is delicious.

Depending upon how many pounds of meat you are cooking, you may need to double this recipe. But for 1 brisket that is approximately 8 lbs, this should be enough.
