Cowboy Beef Brisket

Makes 10 servingsCowboy Cooking Recipes from

Prep Time: 10 min.
Grilling Time: 6 hrs.


  • 6-8  pounds boneless beef brisket

  • 3/4  cup onion, finely chopped

  •    2  teaspoon paprika

  • 1/2  teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 1/2  cup water

  •    2  cups prepared steak sauce

  • BarBQ Sauce

    • 1/2  cup onion, finely chopped

    •    2  Tablespoon butter

    •    1  cup ketchup

    •    1  Tablespoon brown sugar

    • 1/4  teaspoon crushed red pepper


Preheat grill to low heat.  Trim fat from brisket to 1/4-inch.

  1. In a small bowl, you want to combine 3/4-cup onion, paprika and black pepper.  Rub mixture evenly over surface of brisket. Place brisket, fat side up, in large disposable pan.  Add 1/2-cup water and cover pan tightly with aluminum foil.  Place in center of grid over very low coals. (Single layer of coals with space in between each.)  Close cover on grill and cook for 5 hours, turning brisket over every 1-1/2 hours.  With a baster, remove fat as it accumulates in pan.

  2. Add additional 1/2-cup water to pan, as needed.  Add briquettes as needed to keep coals at a very low temperature. Remove foil from pan. Remove brisket and place on grid directly over very low coals.  Remove and reserve 1-cup of the pan drippings.  Mix remaining pan drippings with 1-cup of the prepared steak sauce.  Brush mixture over brisket.

  3. Close grill cover and continue cooking 1 hour, brushing occasionally with sauce.  Meanwhile, cook 1/2-cup finely chopped onion in the butter until tender.  Stir in remaining 1-cup steak sauce, reserved pan drippings, ketchup, brown sugar and crushed red pepper.  Simmer for 10 minutes. Serve with the brisket.

Alan's Kitchen Tips:
If you prefer, you may cook the brisket in the oven for 5 hours and 275 F and then finish on the grill.

Cowboy Did You Know
The arrival of English-speaking settlers in Texas began in 1821, while California did not see a large influx of settlers from the United States until after the Mexican-American War. However, in slightly different ways, both areas contributed to the evolution of the iconic American cowboy.  Particularly with the arrival of railroads, and an increased demand for beef in the wake of the Civil War, older traditions combined with the need to drive cattle from the ranches where they were raised to the nearest railheads, often hundreds of miles away.
