How do I cook a beef brisket roast in the oven?

Hi, I have never cooked a roast before and cant seem to find any very good instructions online or in a bunch of cookbooks that I checked.

I have a 3 pound brisket roast that I want to cook tomorrow in the oven, its been thawing for 2 days in my fridge so far and Im going to take it out 2 hours before I start cooking it.

Ive read some recipes but Im still vague on what to do from there.

Is it alright if I cook it directly on the oven racks? I want to keep it fairly simple and I really dont want to screw it up. I dont want to buy things like a roasting pan or cooking wine if I dont need to but things like olive oil, onions, garlic, common spices, ect. are fine.

Also some recipes suggest cooking it at high temperatures first then lowering the heat but others say slow and low all the way is better, what do you guys think?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
