How to Make it

Step 1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a small bowl, combine all of the spices for the brisket. Rub the spices all over the brisket.

Step 2. Place the brisket in a large baking dish fat side down and bake for 50 minutes. Remove the dish from the oven and allow the dish to cool for about 15 minutes.

Step 3. Flip the brisket over and carefully add ½ cup of water or broth to the pan. Make sure the liquid is warm or at room temperature and not cold so as to not shock the hot baking dish

Step 4. Place your ThermoPro thermometer probe into the thickest part of the meat and set the thermometer to 200-210 degrees (210 if you want the meat to shred more easily at the end of cooking.

Step 5. Reduce the oven temperature to 300 degrees. Tightly cover the dish with foil and place the brisket back into the oven for 2.5-3 hours, or until the temperature is reached. Allow the meat to cool for 15 minutes.

Step 6. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. In a shallow bowl, combine the flour and spices. Toss the onion slices in the milk, then dredge them into the flour mixture. Alternatively, you can place the flour mixture in a plastic bag and add the milk covered onions and shake the bag to coat. .

Step 7. Place the onions on a sheet pan and roast for 10-15 minutes on each side, or until browned and crispy

Step 8. Once the brisket has rested, slice thinly across the grain and place the slices in the pan to soak up the juices, turning the slices a few times.

Step 9. Assemble sandwiches on your favorite bun or roll with a few pieces of lettuce, then slices of brisket, followed by any pan juices, some crispy onions, and your favorite barbecue sauce if you’d like.
