Kilgus Family Favorite Brisket Recipe

We made an error in the write-up of our family favorite brisket recipe that went out to you all last week. Fortunately, one of our readers pointed it out to us, and the correct version is included here in the recipe below. Don't forget the 1/2 cup of brown sugar in your sauce! 

Barbeque Beef Brisket (or Roast Beef) 
Note: This is one of our family favorites. You can either follow the instructions for oven roasting below or simplify the recipe by rubbing the roast, combining all other ingredients in your crockpot, and cooking on low for 8 hours. In this version, you'll want to shred the roast instead of slicing it. It's delicious either way!

6 lb beef brisket or beef roast. We recommend Kilgus Farmstead brisket, sirloin tip roast, or chuck roast.
1/2 cup bbq spice rub. We recommend Pottstown BBQ Rub found at Kilgus Farmstead Country Store.
4 cups water 
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1 tablespoon finely ground coffee
black pepper to taste

Rub the brisket or roast generously with spice blend, cover and let marinate overnight in the refrigerator. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put the beef, fat cap up, in a roasting pan. Add 1 cup water to the pan and roast the beef uncovered for 1 hour.
In a medium bowl, combine the coffee, brown sugar, pepper to taste, 3 cups hot water and the cider vinegar.
Remove the beef from the oven, pour the coffee mixture over the beef, cover with foil and braise until beef reaches an internal temperature of 185 and is fork tender, about 3 hours (2 to 2 1/2 hours if using Jersey beef). Remove to a carving board to let rest.
Cook the braising liquid in the roasting pan on the stove top, skimming fat and allowing to reduce just slightly or to desired consistency. Thinly slice the beef across the grain.

And remember, if you want to try this recipe using Kilgus Farmstead brisket, you can get it in our country store or at Pottstown Meat and Deli in Peoria, Illinois.
