3 lb. beef brisket
FOR THE RUB:
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. celery seeds
1/8 tsp. black pepper
FOR THE SAUCE:
1/2 cups ketchup
1/2 cups chili sauce
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
2 tbsp. vinegar
2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 tsp. liquid smoke
Note: a substitute for chili sauce is: 2 cups ketchup, 3 tsp. chili powder.
-Combine the rub ingredients in a small bowl; chili powder, garlic powder, celery seed & pepper.
-Rub onto the meat.
-Make sure you rub it in good and all over the meat. That's why it's called a rub.
At this point you can cover it in plastic wrap and pop it in the fridge overnight to really deepen the flavors.
If you don't have time to do that, don't worry, this will still give your meat great flavor.-Place brisket into bottom of the crock pot.
-Combine all the sauce ingredients and stir together well.
-Pour sauce all over the brisket, coating evenly.
-Cover and cook on low for about 8 hours.
-When ready, remove meat and cut the brisket across the grain, making thin slices.
When you cut across the grain, it gives you a tender cut of meat.
