Beef Brisket in the Oven Recipe | A delicious brisket is a wonderful treat for the whole family & for friends! Cooking it on the oven is so easy anyone can do it!
Serves: 8


  1. Preheat oven to 225°.
  2. Trim brisket and remove most of the fat cap, leaving about ¼ inch of fat (excess fat won’t allow the rub to penetrate the meat and won’t render (melt) during cooking).
  3. On the meaty side; slice off any silver skin, which is a tough, thin membrane. Smaller cuts may not have excess fat, but do check meaty side for silver skin.
  4. Sprinkle Bone Suckin’ Steak Seasoning liberally all over the brisket.
  5. Place a thermometer in the thickest part of the brisket .
  6. Place brisket on a small rack to hold up in the air in baking pan & cover with aluminum foil.
  7. Cook until meat reaches internal temperature of 203°

You can put the leftovers in resealable bags and freeze or if you have a vacuum bagging machine you can do that.

If you vacuum bag the brisket you can reheat easily in the oven at 250° by putting it in a baking pan and putting about 2 inches of water in it. Takes about 2 hours to reheat this way.

Put the meat (wrapped in foil) into the cooler. Close cooler and leave meat there for 1 to 2 hours, until you are ready to eat.

Slice meat against the grain after separating the flat and point sections (each has a different meat grain direction).

Be advised that there is a period called “the stall” where the meat temperature tends to stay a little over 150° for a long period of time (during this time moisture in the meat rises to the surface and cools the meat by evaporation). Temperature is “stuck” up to 5 hours, depending on size of brisket.
