A Mouthwatering Oven Brisket Recipe


Are you ready to impress your guests with a delicious and easy-to-make oven brisket? Look no further! Our Rowdy Hog Smokin BBQ family is excited to share this crowd-pleasing recipe that will have everyone begging for seconds.

Buying the Perfect Brisket

When it comes to purchasing the meat, you have a few options. We recommend visiting Reasor’s or a local meat market for the best quality briskets. However, if convenience is key, you can also find them at Sam’s Club or even Walmart. Don’t worry; the recipe will still result in a mouthwatering brisket, regardless of where you buy it.

This recipe is tailored for a 4-5 pound brisket, which can comfortably feed 10-15 people. It’s a fantastic choice when hosting larger gatherings during the holidays. Plus, it makes a delightful alternative to the traditional ham or turkey. You can enjoy this flavorful brisket all year round for dinner parties, get-togethers, and even tailgates. It’s so versatile that you can even turn it into mouthwatering sandwiches with some added BBQ sauce!

The Ingredients You’ll Need

  • 4-5 pound brisket
  • 2 tsp celery salt
  • 1 tsp onion salt
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp lemon pepper
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Tbsp liquid smoke
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup water


Preparing and Marinating the Brisket

To begin, mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. This flavorful combination will create a mouthwatering marinade for the brisket. Once the mixture is ready, generously apply fresh cracked pepper and salt to the meat.

Next, place the brisket inside an oven bag. These can be found on the same aisle as Ziploc bags.


Pour the prepared liquid mixture over the meat, ensuring it covers both sides.


Flip the brisket over several times, allowing the marinade to evenly coat the meat.


Finally, place the brisket on a cookie sheet or in a rectangular baking dish with the fatty side facing down. It’s crucial to marinate the brisket overnight for optimal flavor.

Cooking the Brisket

The following day, preheat your oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Remember, timing is everything. Bake the brisket for approximately one hour per pound. For example, a 3-pound brisket will require around 3 hours of cooking time, while a 4-pound brisket will need about 4 hours. However, it’s essential to periodically check on the meat’s doneness. For accurate results, use a meat thermometer to ensure the internal temperature reaches 180-190 degrees Fahrenheit.


Once the brisket is ready, let it rest for a few minutes. To ensure perfectly sliced portions, ask your hot husband to help you with an electric knife. Trust us; it’s worth it!
