Salt and lots of pepper to taste
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup liquid smoke
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup ketchup

  1. Trim excess fat from brisket. Season brisket with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Mix liquid smoke, vinegar, sugar, ketchup and Worcestershire sauce together and spread over brisket. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 300F.
  3. Place brisket and marinade in oven. Bake, covered, for 4 to 5 hours or until brisket is tender.
