BBQ sauce on Briskit? Wed, 01/23/08 11:21 AM (permalink)
I see people put BBQ sauce on Briskit before tasting it, can't figure that out, it's like putting ketchup on a filet mignon. OK if the briskit is really dry, otherwise I don't get it. Do you sauce your briskit?

    This is a wonderful recipe...
    1/2 cup honey
    3 tablespoons soy sauce
    seasoned salt to taste

    1 (5 pound) beef brisket
    1 cup apple cider
    seasoned salt to taste

    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 the oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Season the brisket all over with seasoned salt, and place in a roasting pan. Pour the apple juice over it, and cover tightly with aluminum foil.
    Roast the brisket for 3 hours in the preheated oven. Don't peek.
    Prepare a grill for low heat. In a small bowl, stir together the honey and soy sauce, and season with seasoned salt.
    When the roast comes out of the oven, place it on the preheated grill. Grill for 30 minutes, turning frequently and basting with the honey sauce.
    Meanwhile, in a saucepan over low heat, make a barbeque 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 after it comes off the grill. Slice and serve with the barbeque sauce.

      I always server the sauce on the side.....let the meat speak for itself.

        Sauce on the side but I almost always dip the meat in it. I like a smoky spicy sauce for brisket.

            I always serve sauce on the side. I don't like the idea of sauce moistening the bark on the outside. In fact there's places here around Austing which will give you a funny look if you ask for sauce.

              I agree. But then plenty of people like to pile cole slaw on a bbq sandwich which to me kind of defeats the purpose of good cue.

                The first half of he brisket goes down all by itself. Then, and only if the sauce is very good will I dab a little of the remaining brisket in the sauce. Usually a good mix IMHO

                  I would never plop the sauce on without trying the meat first. I guess that once you decide it needs a sauce, the next question is what type of sauce do you use? I prefer a loose, Texan red sauce for brisket, but a vinegar sauce for pork.

                    Mix some of the juice from the brisket w/ whatever sauce you like. Serve it on the side.

                    Salw w/ pulled pork I like, but not w/ brisket.

                          For about 5 years, I got to be a judge at the Houston Rodeo BBQ and there the sauce had no place at all.

                          The meat was judged on it's own. Entirely.

                          I didn't think that was altogether fair in that in the ideal world great meat is combined with super sauce and the end is a symphony of BBQ.

                          In any event the judging was a great experience.

                            I personally always order sauce on the side so I can judge the taste of the meat. Then I add the sauce to judge that.

                              Rusty-thanks for asking!! In my estimation and experience,this serves about 6-8 people.But we love brisket that way.I also serve cabbage on the side, potatos, rolls, etc.I also love leftovers, so I compensate for that.

                                A really good BBQ sauce with some good brisket is like icing on a cake. It's a synergy thing.

                                Crappy sauce with a crappy brisket will still taste like crap.

                                  For brisket, I like a warm tomato-y sauce ie. Goode Company or Sonny Bryan's.

                                  I try to keep some Goode Co. sauce in stock here at home ... even if I don't rightfully smoke the meat, it brings out the nice flavor.

                                    Great one, I must give credit to Sonny Bryan's for the juice in the sauce thing I mentioned earlier.

                                      OK - Ann. It's on the menu for company this weekend! I usually do my oven brisket in non barbecued fashion (slow-cooked with lots of paprika, onions and mushrooms) but this sounded too good not to try. Too icy here in Michigan for grilling the final steps, though. So I'm going to use the broiler for that effect. I'll post a "post-mortum" for you. Sides will be roast potatoes and fresh string beans. Thanks again for sharing! - Rusty

                                                a good brisket should not need sauce, that being said...

                                                If a brisket is bland and dry, a good sauce can cover a multitude of sins.

                                                    Ann - This was a SMASH HIT with family and guests. Thank you so much for the recipe and idea. We will make this over and again. It is truly "The Peeples Brisket." A few post-dinner notes follow:

                                                    1) I used apple cider rather than juice. Your recipe named both. I don't think it would have mattered. The meat came out tender and delicious. Also, your recipe cited "seasoned salt" but didn't specify. I used Lawry's to good effect.

                                                    2) I poked a few small fork holes in the aluminum foil, fearing a wet, sticky explosion in the oven. Cooking time was exactly three hours. I feel you could turn the heat down to 250 from the start and go longer and slower, though. I roasted the brisket with the fat cap on top.

                                                    3) Save all the juices in the pan! Lay the sliced brisket in it after you cut it up. They will soak this up in short order.

                                                    4) I increased the honey baste by about half as much. The brisket liked this very much. I used the broiler rather than an outdoor grill. This actually allows for better control to prevent burning. By using a whole brisket, I cut the fat cap off, trimmed it down, and found a smaller, good chunk of meat underneath.

                                                    5) The biggest hit? Your BBQ sauce! Just powerfully rich and smoky tasting. A snap to make, and I made it ahead of time and nuked it right before serving. It was Oh My God great.

                                                    6) I served 6 adults and had enough leftovers that I froze for another dinner for two down the road.

                                                    Again, great recipe, great results.

                                                    - Rusty

                                                      well with such rave reviews on Ann's recipe, I must try it. Just wondering how this would go.....
                                                      1. Instead of season salt how about some Essence?
                                                      2. Adding some liquid smoke to the honey mixture
                                                      3. Chipotle powder to the bbq sauce
                                                      But first I must try Ann's the way she recommends. It sounds delish
