The New Basics
- 1 brisket of beef (about 5 lbs.)
- ½ t. natural liquid smoke flavoring
- 1 t. salt
- ½ t. paprika
- ½ t. garlic powder
- ½ t. dry mustard
- 8 to 10 sandwich rolls
- 2 cups BBQ sauce
Preheat the oven to 325.
Place the brisket in a roasting pan, and brush with the liquid smoke.
Combine the salt and spices in a small bowl and mix well. Rub this into the brisket.
Cover the roasting pan, and bake until the brisket is fork-tender, about 3 ½ hours.
Remove the pan from the oven, and use two forks to pull the meat apart in the pan juices, shredding it coarsely.
For each sandwich, halve a roll and spoon about 2 T. heated BBQ sauce over the bottom. Pile about 1 cup of shredded meat on the roll and pour 2 -3 more T. of sauce over the meat and cover with the other half of the roll.
Serve with additional BBQ sauce and coleslaw.
