BBQ Brisket Recipe
Wait, you can cook brisket in the slow cooker? You bet! Start by combining brown sugar, chile powder, cumin, salt, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper. Rub all over a 4-lb. beef brisket and chill in the refrigerator overnight. The beef will cook in a vinegar barbecue sauce for about 8 hours—or until it’s very tender. Slice the brisket against the grain when it’s ready to serve. Now that your main dish is taken care of, it’s time to think about the sides. Our collection of BBQ Side Dishes gives you plenty of options to choose from. Big Daddy’s Grilled Blue Cheese-and-Bacon Potato Salad is too good to pass up, but our classic Shout Hallelujah Potato Salad tastes just like the version we grew up on. Coleslaw makes another great side option for brisket. Whether you’re looking for a vinegar-based version or something slightly creamier—there’s a coleslaw recipe for you. Finish your meal with one of our delicious Homemade Ice Cream Recipes and you’ll have a crowd-pleasing meal that your family will ask for time and again.
