Fantastic flavor and super tender. I only made one brisket so I cut the rub ingredients in half. My brisket was kinda of thin so I started it at 325 for 2 hours, then 2 more hours at 300.

If this was a true Texas recipe, that brisket would be smoked and not put in the oven. When you cook it like that, its considered a roast.

I modified the recipe by cooking it on a gas grill with indirect heat for about 3 1/2 - 4 hours. My husband's comment was "this tastes like it's from a restaurant!" Mission accomplished.
