The Best Oven Baked Brisket you will ever eat!!!
I really love brisket if it is good and juicy. I hate it when you order brisket and it comes to you dry with little more than smoke for taste. I smoke brisket and ribs but this recipe for brisket is really better than a smoked brisket. I think the apple juice adds a taste to the beef that is hard to get on the smoker. Another good thing about this recipe is you can cook it even if it is 20' outside. Of course it will be a while until we see temps like that on Beaty's Creek. We our brisket with potato salad, pickles, and onion. This is What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek today.
1 beef brisket that has not been trimmed
1 quart apple juice
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 cup brown sugar
Pour apple juice into a covered baking pan. Lay your brisket in the pan and coat with salt and pepper. I use a lot because as the brisket cooks in the apple juice it spreads the salt and pepper through out the meat. I now place the brown sugar on the top of the brisket and spread it all over with my hand. Cover and bake at 300' for 5 hours. Now cover with bar-b-que sauce of your choice, replace cover,and turn the oven up to 400' for 1 1/2 hours. Let meat rest for 20 minutes before you slice it. Serve on buns with a pickle and onion. Good and easy!
