Coca Cola Brisket


Brisket is a tough meat and requires special care in preparation to make it a tender and flavorful dish. After cooking the brisket to a high internal temperature, a resting period is required to allow the hot juices that have escaped during the cooking process to be reabsorbed into the brisket. Refresh yourself!


  • 1 brisket 6 to 8 pounds
  • 1 (12 oz) can Coca Cola
  • 1 (12 oz) bottle chili sauce
  • 1 packet dried onion soup mix
  • 2 cups bar-b-que sauce any flavor
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp onion powder


Step 1

Season the brisket with the garlic and onion powder. Mix cola, chili sauce and onion soup mix.

Step 2

Place brisket fat side up in a Dutch oven or 13x9x2 baking dish after lightly spraying with Pam.

Step 3

Pour liquid mixture over brisket and cover tightly with lid or aluminum foil.

Step 4

Bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes per pound, about 3 1/2 hours or until tender. You may cook the brisket all day at 220 degrees. Pour barbecue sauce in the last 30 minutes of baking.

Trim the fat from the brisket. To trim or not to trim the fat is optional in baking brisket. If you choose not to trim before baking, trim fat after baking.
