Slow cook that BBQ beef brisket for great sandwiches

Jon’s Rating: This one turned out to be an excellent choice. When it comes to sandwiches such as this, let me let you in on a simple trick. Take the time and effort to lightly butter your sandwich bun and toast by broiling in the oven or in the countertop toaster over. It improves the results every time.

I grew up on shredded bar-b-que pork sandwiches as it was a staple of my mothers cooking scheme to keep the boys and the hay hauling crews fed. Shredded beef comes as a treat to me and this is one of the better recipes for bar-b-que beef that I have had.

I’m giving this one 4 out of 4 hats, and will look forward to reheating what is left this week. Give this one a try and remember…. For better results butter and toast the bun!

Slow Cooker
BBQ Beef Brisket
From Pinterest Holly

2 to 3 pounds beef brisket
1 Tbsp. dried thyme leaves
1 Tbsp. paprika
2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
½ tsp. liquid smoke flavoring
3 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 (18 ounce) bottle barbecue sauce

Combine thyme, paprika, pepper, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, and cumin in a small bowl. Rub spice mixture all over the top of the brisket.

Pour 1 cup water in bottom of slow cooker. Place spice covered brisket over water. Pour liquid smoke and Worcestershire sauce over top of brisket. Cover with lid and cook on Low heat for 12 hours.

Once done cooking, carefully remove brisket to a large platter. Remove fat from bottom of brisket. It should easily skim right off. Discard fat, shred brisket.

Carefully (it will be hot!) pour what’s left of water out of slow cooker. Place shredded brisket back in slow cooker and pour barbecue sauce all over the top. Gently stir. Cover with lid and cook another 30 minutes or until sauce is heated through.

Serve brisket warm and enjoy!
