BBQ Beef Brisket



  • 1 brisket – fat trimmed
  • 1 package dry onion soup mix
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce (Open Pit)
  • 1 cup water
  • 10 ginger cookies – crunched
  • 1 small can cranberry sauce (1/2 of regular can)


Directions: Mix first 3 ingredients and pour over brisket in roasting pan. Cover and bake at 325 degrees for 1 ½ hours.

Mix next 2 ingredients (cookies and cranberry sauce) and add to sauce. Cover and continue to cook another 1 ½ hours. If sauce is too thick, add water. Brisket can also be cooked in a crock pot but will take at least 5 hours on high setting.

Brisket is done when it is tender and falling apart.
