Instructions for this Oven Roasted BBQ Beef Brisket:

  1. Recommended: Submerge this beef brisket in a brining solution to inject moisture and break down the tough meat tissue for 6-8 hours.

  2. Mix the spices together. Generously rub the meat on all sides with the spice rub. Set aside for up to an hour. You can even prep the meat the night before and let it cure overnight.*

  3. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees farenheit.

  4. In a roasting pan, place the carrots, onions and celery into the pan. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and toss the vegetables to cook. Arrange the pieces together to form a ‘raft’ to place the beef on.

  5. Bring 1 tablespoon of olive oil to medium temperature on the stove top. Add the meat and cook for 2-4 minutes on each side to sear or brown.

  7. Add the red wine to the sauté pan and stir over the heat to gather the pan juices and brown bits into the liquid, making use of every bit of flavor. Pour into the roasting pan.

  8. Cover with foil and cook until the beef registers an internal temperature of 180 degrees.

  9. Once the beef reaches the proper internal temperature, remove the foil and brush with the barbecue sauce. Put the oven roasted beef brisket back into the oven for another 5 minutes or so to heat the sauce through so it creates a glaze on top of the meat.
