    Man do I love beef brisket, and man do I love sliced and stacked on a sandwich bun smothered in BBQ sauce.  I usually like to smoke it for long periods of time so it develops that nice crust on the outside and slices like butter.  Well, I don’t have that kind of time so I slow roasted it in the oven and wow did it turn out great.  If you don’t have a smoker then try this out with sweet onions!


    the onions just make this dish!
