Well-cooked beef brisket is a thing of beauty. You can literally sit in awe of a fantastically flavorful slice of beef brisket. We hope you will love this recipe for the best ever beef brisket.
You can cook brisket one of two ways. You can cook it low and slow in the oven or a slow cooker, or you can smoke it. We love the flavor and crust you get from smoking - so that’s how we’re making it. If you don’t have a smoker, it’s okay. You can cook the brisket on low in the oven.

1/2 cup brown sugar
1 Tb smoked paprika
1 Tb garlic powder
1 Tb dry mustard
2 Tb salt
Prepare Brisket: mix together all dry ingredients. Rub down both sides of the brisket; really make sure you have all the nooks and crannies covered, but pay special attention to the fat cap.
Cover, and store your brisket overnight in the refrigerator.
TO COOK IN THE SMOKER:
Bring your smoker to 250*F, and place the brisket in a foil container to keep the juicy good stuff from leaching out.
When the interior of the meat reaches 170 degrees, in around 4-5 hours, pull out the brisket and cover it in foil, and put it back in the smoker until the internal temperature is 200*F.
Let your brisket rest (while wrapped) for approximately 10 minutes, and then unwrap it and let it rest for about 5 more minutes before slicing.
TO COOK IN THE OVEN:
Line a roasting pan with aluminum foil and preheat the oven to 175*F.
Cook for 5-6 hours, fat side up, until the internal temperature reaches 195-200*F.
Serve with your favorite side dishes and if you must, barbeque sauce.
