Step 1
To prepare the Beef Brisket (3 lb) , slice away the thicker pieces of fat. Make sure to leave some fat on the brisket, as it gives it a lot of flavor.
Step 2
To prepare the rub, in a bowl combine Brown Sugar (1 Tbsp) , Paprika (1/2 Tbsp) , Onion Powder (1 tsp) , Garlic Powder (1 tsp) , Dry Mustard (3/4 tsp) , Ground Cumin (1/2 tsp) , Salt (1 tsp) , and Ground Black Pepper (1/2 tsp) . Mix well.
Step 3
Completely cover the brisket with the rub making sure to get the seasonings into every crevice of the meat. Cover and leave it to marinate in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours up to 24 hours, the longer the better.
Step 4
Once the meat has marinated, in the slow cooker begin to prepare the bbq sauce. Add into the slow cooker Garlic (2 cloves) , Apple Cider Vinegar (1/2 cup) , Ketchup (1 1/2 cups) , Brown Sugar (1/2 cup) , Onion Powder (1/2 Tbsp) , Dry Mustard (1/2 Tbsp) , Ground Black Pepper (1/2 Tbsp) , Cayenne Pepper (1 tsp) , and Worcestershire Sauce (1 Tbsp) . Mix well until combined.
Step 5
Place the marinated brisket into the slow cooker. You can spoon the sauce over the brisket, but it isn't necessary; the brisket only needs to be sitting in the sauce. You may cook either on high for 4 hours or cook on low for 8 hours. Because the meat is brisket and cooks better slowly, it is recommended to opt for the low setting, but the high setting is perfectly fine.
Step 6
Remove the brisket. To thicken the sauce, either use the sear setting on your slow cooker to reduce it for a few minutes, or transfer to a sauce pan and reduce until it reaches the desired thickness.
Step 7
Cut and portion the brisket, then serve topped with the BBQ Sauce. Enjoy!
