This Marinated Smokey Beef Brisket is an easy-to-make recipe that’s mouth-watering delicious. Marinated overnight in a smoke-flavored sauce, then baked long and slow in the oven. The scrumptious meat is fork tender and practically melts in your mouth. It’s so good.

Serving Fork Tender Beef Brisket

We made it this past September and, of course, had to taste it while it cooled on the counter. Oh my goodness! After a bite (or two or three) we had to force ourselves to stay away! Thank heavens we didn’t have to wait long before dinner was served!

When making this dish, be sure to allow plenty of time for the overnight marinade and the slow-baking that it requires. It’s best to allow extra time if needed to achieve the full-juiciness in the meat, than not enough which will only result in tough brisket.

Instructions for Making This Recipe

Begin by gathering your ingredients so that you have everything close at hand on the counter or table.

Ingredients for this Brisket Recipe

In a medium bowl, combine the beef stock, soy sauce, lemon juice, minced garlic, and liquid smoke.

Beef brisket is full of connective tissues which make it a tough meat to cook. The best way to handle this is to break down some of the connective tissues with an acidic marinade AND cook it on low heat for several hours. For this recipe, I marinate the meat overnight and then bake at 300 degrees for 5-7 hours, until the meat is so tender that it falls apart with a fork. So be sure you allow plenty of baking time for this recipe.

Smokey Flavors - Liquid Smoke and Smoked Paprika

To enhance the “smokey” flavor even more I added 2 teaspoons smoked paprika to the marinade. I love this stuff!

Preparing the Brisket for Marinating

Place brisket in an oblong baking dish or roaster that has been lined with a large piece of aluminum foil.

Pour the prepared marinade over the meat, making sure to keep the juices inside the foil. Sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper.

Wrap and seal the foil tightly and allow to marinate in the refrigerator for 12-18 hours. For full flavor, 18 hours is better.

The Baked Brisket

Bake in 300 degree oven for 5-7 hours (as needed) or at least 60 minutes per pound. Check on the brisket three or four times to pour juice over the meat.

Sliced Brisket, Ready to Serve

Allow the baked brisket to rest for 15-20 minutes before slicing, cutting across the grain.
