Brisket is slathered in a mixture of mustard and hot sauce, crusted with my BBQ spice mixture and cooked low and slow on my Kamado grill.

This cut of meat comes from the underside of the cow, it helps to support the cow and has a lot of muscle and tissue, hence it really benefits from slow cooking.

I also love to cook Brisket overnight in my slow cooker and slather it with BBQ sauce, you can find that recipe here

I also like to cook it the Goan way – check that out here
