This is a tasty and very easy recipe. Once you’ve had brisket this way you will never want to eat it any other way. Very flavorful!
- 1 beef brisket trimmed (5 or more lbs.)
- 1 bottle of Allegro marinade (Hickory Smoke Flavor)
Take your trimmed beef brisket and put in in a large heavy duty plastic Ziploc bag. Pour the whole bottle of Allegro or other hickory smoke marinade all over the brisket. Let air out of Ziploc and seal. Put in refrigerator to marinate overnight or at least 12 hours. The longer you marinate, the more tender the brisket.
Preheat oven to 450.
After marinating, remove brisket from Ziploc and put the brisket into a Pam-sprayed pan with a cover. Add your marinade juices on top of brisket.
Cook without a cover for about 30 minutes to brown the brisket.
Turn heat on oven to 250 degrees and cook slowly checking once an hour to make sure juices do not evaporate. If they do, add 1 cup of water (not too much water it will dilute the flavor). Once you are able to stick brisket with a fork and pull the meat apart easily, your brisket is ready (about 3 hours). I like to pull the whole brisket apart and pour the juices over the meat. I usually put in a chafing dish or a crockpot on low to keep warm until I’m ready to serve. ENJOY!
