Here's the easiest brisket recipe ever.  It's a 'cheaters' recipe because it tastes like it was slow Oven Beef Brisketsmoked in a real BBQ smoker.   It is smoky, as spicy as you want it (or not) and wonderful for sandwiches too.

This is a great brisket recipe for the times of the year you can't fire up the BBQ and you still crave that smoky goodness.

One Whole Beef brisket with a thin layer of fat on one side

¼ c liquid smoke  (less if the brisket is smallish)

¼ c lemon juice

3 T Montreal Steak seasoning (or any good steak seasoning)

1-3 T crushed red pepper (depending on how much heat you want)

½ c water


Mix dry ingredients and rub both sides of brisket.

Place brisket fat side up in a glass baking dish.

Mix liquid ingredients and pour over brisket.

Cover VERY tightly with foil so no steam escapes and place in middle of preheated oven.

Bake @ 275 for one hour per pound.

The secret to the perfect brisket is NOT opening the oven door until the brisket has cooked for an hour per pound.  No peeking!
