Authentic, delicious brisket recipes straight from Stubb’s Legendary Bar-B-Q will make for a memorable cookout this 4th of July. And that’s where I found this BBQ Brisket Recipe So easy, the brisket is simply coated with a couple of bottles of Stubb’s Beef Rub then slow cooked to tender, mouthwatering perfection.
Not owning a smoker, I’ve always prepared my brisket in the oven. Using brisket cooking tips from Stubb’s I followed this method: After coating with the Stubb’s Beef Rub, I seared it at about 400 degrees on our gas grill until well browned about 5 minutes per side. Then wrapped it very well with heavy duty foil and transferred it to a 200-220 degree oven for about 8 hours, or until the internal temperature read 185 degrees. This was for a 7.5 pound brisket
Then I use the probe test – when a probe slides in and meets little resistance (like room temperature butter) it’s done. For this Black Bark version, there is no mopping so a nice flavorful crust forms on the brisket. So easy you’ll feel like a BBQ pit master.
A tip from Stubb’s: Slice along the ribbon of fat that runs horizontally through the meat. Then, slice the meaty halves of the brisket against or across the grain.
Even though a brisket will feed an army, you’re sure to have left overs. And what to do with those brisket leftovers? How about adding that tender beef to a western themed pizza. Using Stubb’s Sticky Sweet for the red sauce base, a layer of cheddar cheese, some chopped red onion, tomato, and jalapeno, sprinkle on some of that shredded brisket. Finished with cilantro and ranch dressing, this is a delicious pizza pie. The combination of flavors here is outstanding. Stubb’s Sticky Sweet Sauce is a thick rich sauce with brown sugar and molasses for an authentic Southern flavor. It’s perfect for dipping, infusing and of course for brisket. It was a great base for this pizza and complimented the toppings perfectly.
I free-formed this pizza dough rustic style and placed it on a baking sheet that had been sprinkled with corn meal . Add the toppings and bake until the cheese is bubbly and the dough is starting to brown.
- 1 Tablespoon Corn meal
- 1 medium pizza shell
- 1/2 Cup Stubbs Sticky Sweet Legendary BBQ sauce
- 1/2 Cup cheddar cheese grated
- 1/2 medium red onion chopped
- 2 medium tomato chopped
- 2 small jalapeno chopped
- 1 cup shredded Black Bark Brisket
- Fresh cilantro fine chopped and Ranch Dressing for topping
Preheat oven to 425. Sprinkle pizza stone or baking sheet with corn meal. Flour work surface with flour and shape pizza dough into a round or rustic rectangle style. Move the dough to a pizza stone or baking sheet. I purchased raw dough from the grocery store to make this even easier.
Evenly coat the dough with the BBQ sauce and then cheddar cheese
Sprinkle on the rest of the ingredients.
Bake for 15 - 20 minutes or until everything looks bubbly and cooked. Remove from oven and sprinkle with chopped cilantro and drizzle with Homemade Buttermilk Ranch dressing.
