May 12, 2017

This Oven-Barbecued Beef Brisket is so tender, juicy, smokey and down-right awesome! No one will ever guess it wasn’t cooked on the grill.

  • Cook: 4 hrs
  • Yields: 1


1/4 Cup Briggs True Texas Seasoning & Rub

1 brisket roast (4 to 5 pounds)

1 pound of bacon

1/2 Cup Briggs True Spicy Bourbon Bacon BBQ Sauce


1Place oven rack in upper-middle position and heat oven to 275 degrees. Rub dry Briggs True Texas Seasoning all over brisket and poke holes all over with a fork. Place half of bacon going crosswise in a broiler safe 9 by 13-inch pan (it’s best not to use glass). Put brisket fat side down on top of bacon. Lay the rest of the bacon crosswise on top of brisket, wrapping it down around the sides, and tucking any excess under. Cover pan with foil and place in oven for 4 hours.

2Take pan out of oven. Carefully flip brisket over, fat side up. Replace foil and return to oven. Turn off heat and leave brisket in oven 1 additional hour.

3Pour accumulated juices from brisket into large measuring cup or a bowl. Remove bacon from brisket and chop into pieces. Cook bacon in medium saucepan over medium heat for about 5 minutes, until fat has rendered.

4Add Briggs True Spicy Bourbon Bacon BBQ Sauce. Return to heat and simmer until reduced to a syrupy consistency, about 5 minutes.

5Skim fat from accumulated juices and add chicken broth to make a total of 3 cups. Add to mixture in saucepan and reduce until about 3 cups in volume, 8-10 minutes. Take off heat and add Briggs True Spicy Bourbon Bacon BBQ Sauce to taste. Mix well.

6Turn oven to broil. Brush brisket with 1 cup sauce and broil until top is lightly browned and fat starts to crisp. Cut brisket against the grain into ¼-inch slices and serve with extra sauce.
