Makes 6 to 8 servings


  • 1 - cup vegetable oil
  • 1 - cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 - cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 - bay leaf, crumbled
  • 1-1/4 - teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 2-1/4 - teaspoon pepper
  • 3/4 - teaspoon paprika
  • 1 - beef brisket, trimmed (about 3 pounds)
  • 3 - cup Barbecue Sauce (your choice)
  • Fresh cilantro springs

  1. In a shallow dish or large zip-lock plastic bag, mix the oil, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, and bay leaf. 
  2. In a small bowl, add the salt, pepper, and paprika. 
  3. Next, rub the mixture into the brisket. Then add the brisket to the marinade. 
  4. Cover or seal the dish or bag and place in refrigerator and chill for 8 hours. Occasionally turn the meat.

When the meat is ready, prepare the grill to medium to high heat.

  1. For a gas grill, add in front either 2 pieces of oak or 10 hickory chunks. If using a charcoal grill, place the coals in the center.
