  • 4 pounds beef brisket
  • 1/3 cup brisket rub homemade or store bought
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 2 cups barbecue sauce homemade or store bought, divided use
  • cooking spray


  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Coat the meat with the brisket rub.
  • Coat a baking dish large enough to hold the meat with cooking spray. Pour the beef broth into the bottom of the pan.
  • Place the meat into the dish. Pour 1 cup of the barbecue sauce over the top.
  • Cover the dish tightly with foil. Bake for 3 1/2 hours or until meat is tender.
  • Remove the meat from the dish and place on a sheet pan coated with cooking spray. Brush 1/4 cup of BBQ sauce over the top of the brisket.
  • Broil for 3-5 minutes or until caramelized. Watch carefully to make sure it does not burn.
  • Let the meat rest for 10 minutes. Thinly slice against the grain, then serve with the remaining BBQ sauce.
