Sauce Ingredients (this sauce did not turn out well, too vinegary or something; needs work): Brisket: Prepare Brisket:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Trim fat from brisket.
  3. For the rub, combine chili powder, salt, garlic and onion powders, black pepper, sugar, dry mustard, and bay leaf. Pat brisket dry with paper towels and massage rub into both sides.
  4. Place in a roasting pan and roast, uncovered, for 1 hour.
  5. Add beef stock and enough water to yield about 1/2 inch of liquid in the roasting pan.
  6. Lower oven to 300 degrees F, cover pan tightly (with aluminum foil), and continue cooking for 3 hours, or until fork-tender (original recipe called for 4 lb brisket!)
  7. Remove brisket from the oven, let stand 10-30 min.
BBQ Sauce:
  1. Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir the shallots in oil for 5 min. Stir in water, tomato paste, vinegar, brown sugar, honey, and Worcestershire sauce.

    Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer for 3 hrs uncovered until sauce thickens.

  1. Originally red pepper flakes were used but I can't remember where these fit in...
