As a soon to be fantasy football champ (1st year in a league) I have been spending my pre-game days studying football and thinking about food. This is a make the day ahead incredible brisket recipe that will allow you to talk the talk and walk the walk on game day!


  1. 1Cut the garlic cloves in half and insert into the brisket. In a large roasting pan place 1 3/4 c Chipotle Lime Marinade by KC Masterpiece with 1/2 c water and add the brisket. Cover with press and seal and refrigerate for a minimum 30 minutes up to 6 hours. Shred when cool.
  2. 2Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Add onions, and the jalapeno that have been quartered to the pan and place in the oven. You want 1 1/2 hours for every pound depending on the size of your brisket. You can also do this on the grill, charcoal is best, and is great for game day while enjoying the starter food. Just be sure to save room for the main event. Use the same times but be sure and keep the temperature down.
  3. 3While your brisket is working its magic in the oven or on the grill let’s get started on the slaw. I prefer a vinegar based slaw with a bit of spice. Mix the slaw, onion, siracha, salt, pepper, basil, oil, vinegar in a bowl and let sit in the fridge until you are ready to serve.
  4. 4Game day: heat the brisket briefly on the grill or in the oven with the remaining KC Masterpiece Chipotle Lime Marinade. Serve with the slaw and flour tortillas, dlicious and a game day winner!
