Texas Oven Brisket
This brisket is tender, succulent, flavorful, and practically foolproof. The wonderful aroma that fills your house will make you, and anyone else who comes along, impatient for it to get done.
What You Need
5 to 6 pound fresh beef brisket, well trimmed
1 cup barbecue sauce (your favorite)
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup liquid smoke
1 tablespoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons celery salt
2 teaspoons lemon pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup water
Preheat oven to 275°F.
In a large Pyrex baking dish, thoroughly mix all ingredients for sauce. Put the brisket in the baking dish, and turn it over once to coat it with the sauce. Seal the dish tightly with heavy-duty aluminum foil.
Bake at 275°F for 5 to 7 hours (about 1 hour and 15 minutes per pound). Remove from oven and allow to stand for 1 hour before slicing. Slice across the grain, and serve with sauce. Makes 8 to 10 servings.
Note: Be sure to use a Pyrex baking dish or very heavy metal pan. Also, before you prepare the brisket, remove it from the refrigerator far enough ahead of time to allow it to come to room temperature.
