Slow Roasted Brisket
April 17, 2020
"I have tried a number of brisket recipes and this one is consistently the best. We like Gator Brand seasoning for this . Adapted from Americas Test Kitchen/Cooks Country. Make sure you rest the brisket before cutting- and using an electric knife is a must if you want thin sliced brisket, cut against the grain. Thicker, FATTY brisket is best. A thin cut brisket will cook in less time and may not be as mouth watering."
