Something for the special occasion or just a reason to flex your cooking skills, a brisket is sacred in the barbecue community. A special cut for a special occasion and done right you’ll be the dedicated chef from here on out. You can find the steps and ingredients you’ll need here to build a flavorful brisket every time.
What you'll need:
To start, take your BRISKET out of the refrigerator and place it in a 4 inch deep pan lined with parchment paper to sit out. Let it come to room temperature for about an hour.
Next, preheat the oven to 275 F
Once the BRISKET is up to room temperature, trim the excess fat on the top layer to about ¼ inch thick. (not an exact science). Once trimmed, Open your bottle of Sweet Revenge Mustard Barbecue Sauce (more info HERE) and add to a bowl. Mix in about 2 tablespoons of water into 1 CUP MUSTARD BBQ SAUCE just to thin it out a little. (makes it easier to get in the tight spots). Rub the mustard into all areas of the BRISKET.
Now coated with your bbq mustard binder. You are going to apply the rub. Pop the lid on your bottle of SWEET CRACKED PEPPER RUB and pour into a bowl. Massage the rub mix to break any clumps that may have formed and then generously coat the entire surface of your BRISKET, rubbing the mix into all the tight spots. Once finished wrap the BRISKET with the parchment paper
At 275 F the brisket will cook for around 1 hour 15 minutes per pound.
(ex. 2lbs x 1.25hrs = 2.5hrs cooking time)
Once the BRISKET has cooked, take it out of the oven and let it rest (covered still) for 5 to 10 minutes.
Now is the moment you’ve been waiting for. Unwrap your BRISKET showing the world your creation. Using a long sharp knife, thinly slice the BRISKET into ¼ inch slices across the grain. You can enjoy as is or top with your favorite flavor of Sweet Revenge Barbecue Sauce.
