Here's my mom's recipe. It turns out delicious!

Quote
BARBECUE BEEF BRISKET

1 - 12-oz can beer
6 cups water to cover meat
1 onion, sliced
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 – 6 lb beef brisket
1 cup barbeque sauce

Combine all ingredients except barbecue sauce in Dutch oven. Bring to boil, cover & simmer 4 hours. Allow to cool to lukewarm in cooking liquid.

Transfer brisket to plastic container, add 1 cup barbecue sauce, cover & refrigerate for 48 hours. Cook over medium coals 15 minutes each side. Makes 12 – 16 servings.

Sounds most excellent! Where was your mom raised? I've never heard of boiling the brisket first, I've done it with corned beef though.

Moms cooking is always the best!

She was raised in Illinois, both sides of her folks from Germany. I'm not sure, but it's possible she got this recipe in Tucson, to where she retired.

Her recipe would work. The meat would be tender.  The flavor would be in the sauce.


What I mean to say is, if boiled, it would have to be lean, all of the fat trimmed off, with a terrific sauce.

Texas brisket relies on the fat for flavor and tenderness, a real BBQ sauce is not added.

I enjoy it either way!
