BBQ faves you can make in your slow cooker all year long
Nothing beats a plate of tender, juicy beef brisket. This type of meat is usually cooked on a special BBQ grill or cooked low and slow in a pit or special smoker for hours, even days.
For this recipe, you'll need 2 to 3 pounds fresh beef brisket trimmed of fat and cut down to slow-cooker size. Make an easy spice rub with 1 teaspoon chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon celery seed and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Evenly rub onto the meat, and place in your slow cooker.
For the sauce, combine 1/2 cup ketchup with 1/2 cup chili sauce, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 2 tablespoons vinegar, 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce, 1 1/2 teaspoons liquid smoke and 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard. Pour on top of the brisket. Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours. Remove from the slow-cooker, set in a large serving dish, and slice. Skim the fat from the juices, and serve drizzled on top or on the side.
