This is my mom’s famous BBQ Brisket recipe. Every time she makes it, people rave on and on about it. It’s usually something that she doesn’t make very often but it’s a staple at our 4th of July parties. This year, I asked her to make it for our family Christmas Dinner at our house as well.
This is the second time I think I’ve made her brisket and it’s kind of a fool-proof recipe. I think the only thing that someone might be able to mess up is the cooking time. I think I may have cooked ours a little bit too long, but it turned out really well and we both enjoyed it thoroughly.
