  1. Nach Waxman's brisket from the Silver Palate New Basics Cookbook:

    There is also the classic with an envelope of Liptons onion soup mix, a bottle of chili sauce, and 1 cup of red wine. Mix them all together & pour over the brisket. Cover and cook at about 350 until it's tender when pierced with a fork (about 3 or 4 hours). Add more red wine if it starts to get dry.

      I almost always use the second recipe you listed but use a can of Coke instead of red wine (sweet and savory). My family loves it!

    2. Here I am replying again but I forgot to mention to always cut of the chine (the layer of fat) before you cook the brisket otherwise you will have a greasy, fatty mess.

      1. Really easy...but...good for summer BBQ..
        Cut the fat off, first.

        The last time I made a brisket, we used a local BBQ Sauce (very thick, low sugar so no burning) and roasted whole, covered in the oven for 2 hours or so. Then took the cover off and let it get a bit crusty. Took about 1 bottle of sauce. I like Arthur Bryant's Sauce from Kansas City.

        1. I would barbecue brisket over a low and slow smoker for many hours. If outside cooking is not possible, roast it over low (225-250) in your oven for several hours, until you can shred it with your fingers. Roast fat side up, so the fat will keep the meat moist. You can wrap the meat in foil after several hours if it seems to be drying out. Both ways, rub it with salt, pepper, cumin, and chili powder or other favorite spice rub. I would serve sauce on the side. you can also brush it with sauce and finish on a higher heat to caramelize it.

          1. The best oven cooked brisket starts with liberally shaking on a bottle of liquid smoke over it and putting it in the fridge overnight....Next morning, draining the marinade and cooking it in a 275 degree oven for 5 hours, remove from oven, cover with you favorite BBQ sauce and cook for another hour...Let cool a bit and slice it diagonally....I am basing this on a 5=6 lb brisket....Oh, and fat side up...

              Do you really shake a whole bottle of liquid smoke on it? Just wondering.

                Yes, most or all of a small bottle...You drain it off the next morning before you cook it...You notice that I do not add salt to the brisket, because the liquid smoke does the trick in that area
