Oven Barbecued Brisket

"Nelda Fey Style"


3&1/2 lbs. Beef Brisket, trimmed
3 Tbsps. Liquid Barbecue Smoke®
  Celery Salt
  Onion Salt
  Garlic Salt
3 Tbsps. Worcestershire Sauce
18 ozs. Barbecue Sauce


Pour Liquid Smoke over meat and generously sprinkle both sides with Celery, Onion and Garlic Salts.  Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Do not drain meat.  Sprinkle with Salt, Pepper and Worcestershire Sauce.  Cover with Barbecue Sauce (rinse bottle with a little water and pour over top).

Cover and bake at 250 degrees for 5 hours, basting every hour or so.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool 10 to 15 minutes.  Remove the meat and slice thinly across the grain.  Cover the slices with the sauce and serve.


Nelda Fey used an electric knife to slice it and that became my reason to buy my first electric knife.
