Just A Guide
One thing we taught our kids is that a recipe is only a guideline.
Our kids learned this as they started learning how to cook. We would find
recipes, learn about the ingredients and practicing making them.
Sometimes we would make meals and guess the ingredients.
Cooking became our daughter's favorite pastime. She decided to make cooking her
main project area in 4-H. Each year she picked a country to pick her recipe from. She learned about the ingredients, practiced cooking the recipe, and then
modified the ingredients to her liking.
From this, when asked to cook a brisket she came up with the following rub.
Much like her great grandmother she measured everything using pinches and dashes.
Cooked low and slow in the oven, she made a mouthwatering meal for the family.
The following is a quick guide in cooking a brisket in a more adventurous way, like our daughter has done. No recipe, just some of
her favorite spices. It was absolutely tender and delicious.
We encourage you explore the possibilities that brisket will bring to your family meal.
*Brisket was unthawed
*Heat oven to 275 Degrees
While oven is heating
*Score the back side of the meat.
This lets the fat render while cooking.
*Rub olive oil over the meat to allow the spices to adhere better.
*A secret rub of onion powder, paprika, KC bbq dry rub, sweet heat bbq dry rub - covered both sides of the brisket
*Place on baking sheet
*Place in hot oven for three hours (Depends on weight of meat)
*When the desired temp of the meat is reached remove from oven.
Our desired temp is 160-165 degrees
*Remove brisket from oven and let it rest for about 20 min to 1/2 hour
*Place on cutting board
