Duggar Style Smoked Brisket

Wednesday was Bookmobile day. YAY!! I always look forward to going to the Bookmobile. Many of you were intrigued by the Bookmobile last month when I posted about it. Well, here it is in all its glory :) I didn't take this photo, it was on the library website. I have no idea who the nose woman is, or the man in the blue shirt, but I do know the lady standing in the door. That's Glenda. She's my girl. She's the official Bookmobile driver. If I'm wanting a book she's nice enough to look for it at the main library and bring it to me at the next town stop. She's a doll.

If it wasn't for Glenda, I wouldn't be posting this recipe. I requested the Duggars new book The Duggars: 20 and Counting! a few months ago, but had to wait my turn. Glenda brought it to me Wednesday and I have been excitedly reading it since. It's a really good book. I liked it so well I think I'm going to order it. It has lots of great sounding recipes not listed on their website... like this Brisket. I have also copied down several others I will be sharing with you as soon as I make them. We had my parents for dinner and everyone agreed this brisket was AMAZING!! By far the easiest and best brisket I have ever made. It had such great flavor we didn't even need to use BBQ sauce. It was also very easy to slice and the house smells like a smoke house all day. Those oven bags are really neat to use. If you've never tried them this recipe would be a great one to start with! Seriously... if you are making a brisket you must make this recipe. The Duggars haven't let me down with their recipes yet!

1 5-10 pound brisket
1 tsp celery salt
1 tsp meat tenderizer (I didn't have any of this)
1 tsp seasoning salt
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1 bottle liquid smoke
1/2 bottle Worcestershire sauce
1 large ovenproof cooking bag

Put all ingredients in a cooking bag with the brisket. Marinate overnight in the refrigerator. The next morning, place bag and brisket in a pan and punch holes in the top of the bag with a fork. Bake at 200 for 10-12 hours.
* Cook your brisket with the fat up.
* Every hour or so I swished the bag around while it was baking to keep the meat moist.

We had a bookmobile come to our school when I was little. I lived for it! Dropping by with bloggy love from SITS. Oh, and I love the pic in your header. It's hilarious! Lanie

i've never tried smoked brisket, but i have some friends who rave about it! i've also never tried cooking with liquid smoke, which intrigues me to no end - so i am definitely going to add this recipe to the list of things i must try!

Looks and sounds like a great recipe! I can't remember when I last had brisket! :P

Tammy said...

A whole bottle of liquid smoke? WOW, thats some powerful pronounced was the smoke taste in the final product? Also, how big of a roast did YOU make? What was your final baking time? VERY interesting recipe.

Heidi said...

Coleen- Yes, a whole bottle. It did smell strong while it was cooking, but it really wasn't in the final product. It was not overpowering at all. VERY VERY GOOD! I made probably a 5-7 pound brisket and baked it 10 hours. Very tender and juicy and easy to slice without falling apart. This was excellent to eat with the cooking juices.
