Ever since I got the Big Green Egg, someone will suggest from time to time that I smoke a brisket.  This seems like a good idea, except for when I remember that I’ve never made a brisket, ever, via any method of cooking, so I had been reluctant to take the plunge.  Then I saw a recipe for an oven roasted beef brisket, and honestly, this was so delicious, I’m not sure that I would ever try another cooking method!  So you should make this too.  Tonight!

You’ll need:


  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons dry mustard
  • 1 bay leaf, crushed
  • 3 pounds beef brisket
  • 1 1/2 cups beef stock

First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Make a dry rub by combining chili powder, salt, garlic and onion powders, black pepper, sugar, dry mustard, and bay leaf.  Season the raw brisket on both sides with the rub.


Place in a roasting pan and roast, uncovered, for 1 hour.


Add beef stock and enough water to yield about 1/2 inch of liquid in the roasting pan.  Lower oven to 300 degrees F, cover pan tightly and continue cooking for 3 hours, or until fork-tender.


Trim the fat and slice meat thinly across the grain.  Top with juice from the pan.  Lots of the juice.  It’s delicious!
