There is nothing better than a slow cooked piece of barbecue meat slathered in the best barbecue sauce! But, it is not always feasible to grill, so that’s when you have to use the oven. You can make this delicious oven baked brisket and it will taste like you smoked it for hours!
You might be wondering, how do I make brisket in an oven? It must be grilled to taste good. Doesn’t it? Nope. Not at all.
While a grilled, slow roasted brisket is amazing, you don’t have to spend hours cooking yours. One of the things I love most about this recipe is not only how simple it is to make (minutes to get it into the oven vs. hours at the grill). And, you won’t believe how amazing it makes your house smell!
To start, line your pan with foil (to capture all of the drippings). Place your brisket into the pan. Then, whisk together celery salt, onion salt and garlic salt in a bowl until blended and slather on top of the brisket.
Pour the liquid smoke and Worcestershire sauce over the top of the brisket. Cover with foil and put it in the fridge for at least four hours (overnight work swell too). Then, bake for around 5- 6 hours. That’s it! That’s all it takes to make a brisket in the oven. How simple is that?!
