Slow Cooked BBQ Beef Brisket


IMG_0100This slow cooked BBQ Beef Brisket is amazing! Probably one of the best recipes that I have ever come up with, if I may say so myself lol. The meat turns out so tender, it falls apart as soon as you take a bite. Perfectly crisp on the outside, with the sweet tangyness of the BBQ sauce. I’m getting hungry just thinking about it lol. It’s super easy and fast to prepare, only thing that takes long is baking it in the oven so plan in advance for a long cook time.  Also give it at least 8 hrs but preferably overnight to marinate. I make it often when we have dinner guests over and it is always a big hit! This recipe is versatile, you can pull apart using a fork, add more BBQ sauce, and it can make delicious beef brisket sandwiches or beef brisket taco’s or enchiladas. Yum!

1) Wash the beef brisket thoroughly under cold running water. Pat dry with a paper towel all over and transfer the beef brisket to a big bowl. Add Mayonnaise and BBQ Sauce and smother/rub all over the brisket using your hands. Add all the spices and rub into the beef brisket with your hands.


2) Close the bowl with a lid or foil and let it stand for 1 hour then transfer to fridge and let it marinate over night or at least 8 hours. I sometimes let it marinate 2 nights, as the extra marinating time gives it more flavor and you will have a more tender meat.


3) When ready to bake, just transfer the beef brisket to a baking dish. I like to use a glass baking dish. Bake on 350 Degrees for 3 hours, covered with foil.

4) After 3 hours, take the beef brisket out of the oven. Smother another 3 to 4 TBS of BBQ Sauce onto the brisket, spreading evenly. Stick back in the oven On 350 Degrees for 1 more hour, uncovered, until the BBQ on the beef brisket crisps up a little bit.


Serve in the glass baking dish, on an oversafe surface, and cut into individual serving strips.
