Oven Barbecued Brisket


A relatively inexpensive cut of meat, a brisket needs to tenderize overnight before it's baked. Here we use a full-flavored, smoky barbecue dry rub, then it's slowly baked and basted. Brisket cuts are notoriously fatty, but the flat "first-cut" section is a far better choice for healthy eating than the fattier "point cut." It may be worth calling ahead to make sure your supermarket or butcher has one on hand.

How to Cook Beef Brisket

While anyone can wow dinner guests with filet mignon or another expensive cut of meat, a truer test of cooking skill is transforming a less choice cut, such as beef brisket, into a meal that is tantalizing and unforgettably scrumptious. Beef brisket is cut from the breast or chest portion of a cow or calf. It's a tougher, fattier cut of meat than what most of us might prefer, but slow-cooked and drenched in tangy barbecue sauce, beef brisket becomes extraordinary. Knowing how to cook beef brisket just right is a process that begins long before you heat your smoker, grill or oven.
