Slow-Cooking Brisket in an Oven

mborghese | Sep 23, 2011 08:55 PM

Hi there;

I just bought a whole beef brisket (10lbs).

I created a Texas-style dry rub from a recipe I found online and it's been sitting in the rub since Wednesday.

I don't have a BBQ, smoker, or meat thermometer but I do have an oven.

I was hoping to put the brisket in the oven at around 225 degrees F and let it slow-cook for several hours. But this is my first brisket in the oven, and I was wondering how long I should put it in for? I see lots of posts for 325-350 degrees, but none for a nice slow cook like I want to do.

Also, I bought a disposable aluminum roasting pan to place it in - do I just put it on the pan directly, or do I wrap the beast in foil? Do I then set the foil-wrapped brisket directly on to the pan, or do I have it sit in a marinade/broth?

Any help would be appreciated, I'm a very new chef!
