Smokey BBQ Brisket

One of my hubby's favorite childhood memories is that of his dad making smoked brisket in a real smoker... Everytime we fly out to visit, his dad has smoked brisket waiting for him.
Well, I wanted to bring that 'feeling' into our home. I think it's important to make not only my favorite childhood foods, but also my husbands. But I don't have a smoker and I don't want one. I don't have the room. Remember, I live in a cozy house. {Very little storage }

Being married to a guy from Missouri means I had to find the most awesome smoked bbq brisket recipe out there, and I have ! I've been making this for years. It's simple. It's economical. This brisket was $13.99 . You can get it for around $8.00 when it's on sale !! It feeds my large family. Makes enough for leftovers ( Yahoo ! ) and get this... my husband said it rivals his dad's ! I almost cried right then and there !

When COZY weather arrives, you will be sooooooo HAPPY you bookmarked this recipe ! I promise, it's SOOOOO GOOD !!

{La Rochere goblet in the "Bee"pattern from TJ Maxx ! $2.99 }


1 (4- to 6-pound) beef brisket, trimmed
1 (5-ounce) bottle liquid smoke
1 onion, chopped
2 teaspoons garlic salt
1 to 2 teaspoons salt
1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 (12- to 18-ounce) bottle barbecue sauce ( I use KC Masterpiece )

Place brisket in a large shallow dish or extra-large, heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag; pour liquid smoke over brisket. Sprinkle evenly with onion, garlic salt, and salt. Cover or seal, and chill 8 hours, turning occasionally.

Remove brisket, and place on a large piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil, discarding liquid smoke mixture. Pour Worcestershire sauce evenly over brisket, and fold foil to seal; place wrapped brisket in a roasting pan.



Bake at 275° for 5 hours. ( I put the lid on also )

Unfold foil; pour barbecue sauce evenly over brisket. Bake 1 more hour, uncovered.

This sounds de-lish! I'm definitely bookmarking. Thanks!

Martha said...

This is so similaar to the one I've been making for years which was my mother's recipe. In fact, I've been making it so long that I've joked that I've must have cooked a "couple of cows".

I will vouch that the best way to cook brisket is your waay -- low and slow!

We do save the BBQ sauce to put on at table.

This is definitely recipe that should be in everyone's recipe box!

Brisket and BBQ go together perfectly. We've used our grill, but I've seen smokers on sale, so I'm putting one on my wish list.

Michelle said...

This looks amazing!!! So hearty and comforting.

Mary said...

This really looks and sounds delicious. I have a similar recipe that I've used for years and can tell all your readers that the liquid smoke and low-slow temperature produces a brisket that is really memorable. I hope you are having a great day.

Amber said...

My husband is from Texas and we recently moved to Colorado. He is missing the brisket. I will definitely have to try this out!

Annikke said...

I think my husband would love this! I have bookmarked and will try it -- soon, very soon!

Beth at Aunties said...

I am so stoked you shared this. I have always wanted a true blue recipe for delicious brisket. This sounds devine and with a review like your sweetie gave you, I think I just found the perfect one!
Thanks for sharing!

This looks great. I usually do brisket wrapped in foil, with whole cranberry sauce and onions -- it's delicious, but this looks like a GREAT change. We'll try it!

It sounds outright delicious! But I'm not the greatest of cooks. And I can buy take-out that's much better than what I'd come up with. Trust me.

That sounds so good. I have been cooking for a long time but have never made Brisket; your recipe really tempts me. I think I will try it out when my boys come for a visit this fall.

Your brisket sounds really good. This would be such a nice addition to Crock Pot Wednesday with slow cooker adaptations. I would love to see you link it there.

Sophie said...

MMMMMMM,...My husband would totally love this!!

MMMMMMMMMMMMMM,....It looks wonderful!!

Janean said...

Your recipe sounds de-lish. We smoked turkey (in a real smoker). YUM. Then an Oklahoma friend taught us to smoke high-quality "block" of bologna. Don't laugh until you try it. We were amazed.

Coleen's Recipes said...

This sounds delicious. My hubby will be thrilled. Thank you so much for sharing.

VanderbiltWife said...

Wow! That looks like something I'd love to try. Isn't that the ultimate hubby compliment? I knew I had the right beef stew recipe when my DH said it was better than his momma's.

Christie said...
