4th of July Slow Cooker Brisket

I have been making this easy, yet delicious, brisket for more than a decade. I think the original recipe came from a magazine, perhaps Quick Cooking. If you have a Food Depot near you, they have beef brisket on sale for $2.96 a pound right now.

4th of July Slow Cooker Brisket


Dry Rub:
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon celery seed
1/4 teaspoon pepper

2 1/2 - 3 pounds beef brisket, trimmed

BBQ Sauce:
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup chili sauce
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
1-1 1/2 teaspoons liquid smoke
1/2 teaspoon ground mustard powder

Rub the beef with the dry rub. Spray the slow cooker with cooking spray. In a medium bowl, combine all of the BBQ Sauce ingredients. Place the brisket in the slow cooker. Pour 1/2 of the sauce over the top of the brisket and refrigerate the remaining BBQ Sauce. Cook on high for 4-6 hours or on low 8-10 hours. Serve with warmed, reserved BBQ Sauce.

Serves 6
