Prep: 10 mins     | Cook: 4 hours

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. To make the rub, combine the chili powder, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper, sugar, mustard, and bay leaf in a small bowl, and mix thoroughly.
  3. Season the brisket on both sides with the rub. Place in a roasting pan or Dutch oven and roast uncovered for 1 hour.
  4. Add the beef stock or broth and enough water so that there’s about 1/2 inch of liquid in the pan.
  5. Cover tightly with heavy foil (or the lid, if using a Dutch oven), decrease the oven temperature to 300 degrees F, and continue cooking for 3 hours or until fork-tender.
  6. Slice the meat thinly across the grain. Top with the juices from the pan.
