James’ Brisket


C’EST BON!! Cooking a brisket is one of the easiest dishes to prepare. It is virtually fail proof. Always slice your brisket across the grain of the meat (start on a corner of the flat part).


  • 1 (10 to 15 lbs) brisket
  • Marinade
  • 12 oz Italian salad dressing
  • 2 oz Dales seasoning liquid
  • 2 oz Moore's Marinade
  • 2 oz Worcestershire sauce
  • Granulated Garlic or Garlic powder
  • BBQ seasoning powder
  • Tony Cachere’s seasoning
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Blackened Seasoning powder


Step 1

Put brisket into a large roasting pan. Season brisket with all dry powders.

Step 2

Mix all liquid ingredients and pour over meat.

Step 3

Seal pan tightly with aluminum foil and marinate overnight.

Step 4

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Place roasting pan straight from the refrigerator to oven (cook in marinade).

Step 5

Cook for 6 to 8 hours, depending on size of brisket.

Step 6

If you like BBQ sauce on your meat, take from oven about 1 hour before fully cooked. Slice into strips cutting against the grain (meat will fall apart if you cut with the grain). Layer meat in large aluminum pan, alternating with favorite BBQ sauce (KC Masterpiece Original). Be sure to coat each layer generously with the BBQ sauce. Reseal with aluminum foil and bake another hour.
