Cooking brisket but not sure where to start with that big chunk of meat? Briskets can be awesome when cooked low and slow to tenderness in a slow cooker or smoked on a grill. The large sheet of fat you see on the brisket above will break down in the oven and melt into the meat, making it moist and pull-apart tender. With a flavorful rub or sauce, brisket is our go-to roast. Here we’ve rounded up some of the tastiest recipes for cooking briskets on the web. Give one of these a try for your next meal!
