BBQ Beef Brisket
1 (5 pound) beef brisket
1/2 cups beef broth
3/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
seasoned salt to taste
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, or to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine the chili powder, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, sugar, and seasoning salt in a medium bowl, and blend thoroughly. Apply rub to surface of brisket.
Cook brisket, uncovered, in preheated oven for 1 hour. Remove from oven and add beef broth to roasting pan. Lower oven temperature to 300 degrees F, cover roasting pan tightly with foil, and cook 3 more hours. Let brisket rest before slicing.
Meanwhile, in a saucepan over low heat, make a bar-b-que sauce by combining the ketchup, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, cider vinegar, seasoned salt, and garlic powder. Cook and stir over low heat for 15 minutes without allowing the sauce to boil. If you boil the sauce, it becomes very vinegary. Let the brisket rest for about 10 minutes. Slice and serve with the bar-b-que sauce.
