  • 4-5 pound Beef Brisket flat cut, fat trimmed to ¼ inch
  • 1 pound Bacon
  • 1 1/2 cups BBQ Sauce of choice

Spice Rub Mixture

  • 4 teaspoons Brown Sugar
  • 4 teaspoons Paprika
  • 2 teaspoons Dry Mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon Oregano
  • ½ teaspoon Parsley
  • ¼ teaspoon Cayenne
  • 2 teaspoons Salt
  • 2 teaspoons Black Pepper


  • Preheat oven to 275 degrees F and place rack in upper-middle position.
  • In a bowl, combine all of the spice rub mixture ingredients, and whisk together until there are no lumps.
  • Take a 9x13 baking dish, and criss cross half the bacon strips over the bottom of the dish. Set aside.
  • Trim brisket so fat is only ¼ inch, then use a fork and prick the brisket all over.
  • Rub the roast with the spice rub, until completely coated
  • Place roast on top of bacon in the baking dish, fat side down, and place the other bacon strips on top of the roast, tucking any ends underneath the roast.
  • Cover with aluminum foil.
  • Bake for about 4 hours, until a fork can easily piece and slip in and out of the beef.
  • Remove dish from oven, flip the roast over, place foil back over roast. And return to the oven.
  • Turn oven off, and let roast rest in warm oven for approximately 1 hour.
  • After 1 hour, drain juices off the roast, and set aside.
  • Remove bacon, and discard.
  • Combine reserved juices with BBQ sauce of choice, and heat in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook until reduced about 10 minutes.
  • Turn oven on to broil, and place roast back into now empty baking dish. Brush roast with 1 cup of the sauce.
  • Broil until top is lightly charred and fat is crisp, about 5-7 minutes.
  • Transfer to a cutting board, rest for 5 minutes, then slice against the grain into ¼ inch thick slices.
  • Serve with remaining sauce.
