  • 1 1/2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard powder
  • 5 pounds brisket, fat cap trimmed
  • One 6-ounce can tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard powder
  • Serving suggestion: white bread or rolls


Step 1

For the brisket: Combine the salt, pepper, paprika, cayenne, cumin, granulated garlic and dry mustard in a small bowl. Sprinkle the brisket on all sides with the spice rub. Place the brisket into a slow cooker and cover with the lid. Set the slow cooker to high and cook until tender, about 6 hours.

Step 2

Remove the brisket from the slow cooker and set aside until cool enough to handle. Pour the liquid from the slow cooker into a fat separator. Discard the fat.

Step 3

For the BBQ sauce: Pour the cooking liquid into a stockpot and place over medium heat. Stir in the tomato paste, brown sugar, vinegar, salt, liquid smoke, cayenne, granulated garlic and dry mustard. Bring to a simmer, then reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened, at least 20 minutes.

Step 4

Slice the brisket into 1-inch chunks. Remove and discard any large pieces of fat. Spread the brisket in a 9-by-13-inch pan and pour the sauce over the meat.

Step 5

Turn the broiler on high. Broil until crispy and slightly charred on the edges, about 5 minutes. Serve warm with white bread or rolls.
