Rosalie's Beef Brisquet

4 – 5 lb beef  brisket (not corned beef brisket)  Both Sam’s Club and Costco have good cuts and they are relatively inexpensive.     I have found that the regular grocery stores around here either don’t have it or it’s very pricey.    

Liquid smoke
  • Place brisket in pan lined with tin foil and pour enough liquid smoke to cover meat- close up tin foil 
  • Cook at around 225 – 250 for 5 – 6  hours or until tender.     
  • Pour off liquid smoke, let cool ( I put mine in fridge overnight or at least for a day)  and then slice thin while trying to maintain shape of brisket.   
  • Place brisket back in a tin foil lined pan and pour your favorite barbecue sauce over and in between the slices of meat.  
  • Cover complete with foil and  cook again for about 1 - 2 hours at same temp.   

New to Kayaking?

Don't know how to get started? Which boat to buy? How to learn without embarrassment? What if it tips over? Do I have to roll the kayak?
