Directions

  1. Combine the ingredients for the spice rub. Store in a covered jar till ready to use.
  2. Rub the spice mix into both sides of the briskets, coating proportionately. Let stand at room temperature for 1 hour or possibly chill, covered, for up to 24 hrs. Return to room temperature before cooking.
  3. To cook in the oven, preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Wrap the briskets separately in heavy-duty aluminum foil and place in a shallow baking pan on a rack. Fill the bottom of the pan with 1/2 inch of water. Bake for 5 to 6 hrs, till the meat is very tender, adding more water to the bottom of the pan, if needed.
  4. Light a grill. Add in presoaked wood chips (if using). Unwrap the briskets and grill over medium heat for 10 to 15 min per side, till meat is nicely browned.
  5. Transfer meat to a carving board and let stand for 15 min before thinly slicing across the grain. (May be done ahead to this point; spread the top of each brisket with 1 c. of one of the barbecue sauces, rewrap in foil, and chill.)
  6. To reheat the brisket. Place the wrapped pkgs. in a 300 degree oven for about 1 hour, till meat is warm.
  7. Just before serving, reheat the barbecue sauces to a simmer. Transfer the warm meat to a serving platter and place a basket filled with the sliced rolls alongside. Offer the sauces in decorative bowls to spoon over the beef as your guests assemble their own sandwiches.
  8. Texas Barbecue Sauce: In a large pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add in the onions, chile, and garlic. Cook, stirring often, till onions are limp, about 5 min. Stir in the dry mustard, paprika, and cayenne pepper. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute, till spices are fragrant.
  9. Add in the remaining ingredients; stir to blend well. Simmer gently, uncovered, stirring often for about 30 min. Remove the bay leaves. Use the sauce at once or possibly cover and chill for up to 2 weeks. Reheat before using. (Makes 7 c. sauce)
  10. Carolina Barbecue Sauce: In a medium saucepan, mix together the vinegar, ketchup, sugar substitute, honey, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and salt (if using). Simmer over low heat for 10 to 15 min.
  11. Use the sauce at once or possibly cover and chill for up to 2 weeks. Reheat before using. (Makes 6 c. sauce)
  12. This recipe yields 24 servings with leftovers.
