I have never made brisket before. I have no clue why either. What I can tell you that I was totally missing out. Especially when you can turn it into something as delicious as this! It is so totally worth it.
For The Brisket:
5-6 pounds brisket at room temperature
2 ounces liquid smoke
1 ounce Worcester Sauce
1 cup prepared Barbecue sauce (your choice)
1 cup cola
1 whole onion sliced
3 cloves garlic smashed
For The Bacon Jam:
1 1/2 lbs. bacon
2 sweet yellow onions, sliced into thin ribbons
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoon kosher alt
1 teaspoon black pepper
For The Grilled Cheese:
8 slices Texas Toast or Italian Bread
2 cups cheddar jack cheese
4-5 slices leftover brisket, shredded
For The Brisket
- Place meat in a foil lined baking pan that is enough to fully enclose the meat. Pour Liquid Smoke, Worcester Sauce, BBQ sauce, and cola over the meat. Lift up the meat so it’s underneath. Sprinkle the onions and garlic on top and around the brisket.
