Barbeque Brisket Sandwiches

Barbeque Brisket Sandwiches

Barbeque brisket sandwiches are a classic favorite for many meat lovers. The tender, juicy brisket paired with the smoky, savory flavors of barbeque sauce create a mouthwatering combination that is hard to resist. But how can you take your barbeque brisket sandwich game to the next level? Let's dive into the art of marinating and cooking the perfect brisket for your sandwich.

What makes a great barbeque brisket?

The key to a great barbeque brisket sandwich lies in the quality of the brisket itself. Our pasture raised, dry-aged brisket is marbled with a good balance of fat and meat. This marbling will help keep the brisket moist and tender during the cooking process, resulting in a more flavorful end product.

Marinating for flavor

Marinating your brisket is essential for infusing it with flavor. A simple marinade of salt, pepper, garlic, and your favorite barbeque sauce can work wonders. Let the brisket marinate for at least a few hours, or ideally overnight, to allow the flavors to penetrate the meat.

Slow and low cooking

When it comes to cooking your brisket, the key is to go slow and low. This means cooking the brisket at a low temperature for a long period of time. This slow cooking process allows the fat to render and the connective tissues to break down, resulting in a tender and juicy brisket that is perfect for sandwiches.

Assembling the perfect sandwich

Once your brisket is cooked to perfection, it's time to assemble your sandwich. Start by slicing the brisket thinly against the grain to ensure tenderness. Pile the brisket high on a soft bun and top it off with your favorite barbeque sauce, coleslaw, or pickles for added flavor and texture.

With these tips in mind, you'll be well on your way to mastering the art of barbeque brisket sandwiches. Whether you're hosting a backyard cookout or simply craving a delicious sandwich, the perfect barbeque brisket is sure to satisfy your cravings.

The Recipe:


  • 2-3 lb Hilltop Beef Brisket
  • Celery Salt
  • Onion Salt
  • Garlic Salt
  • 1/2 Bottle Liquid Smoke
  • Worcestershire Sauce
  • HT Salt & Pepper Rub
  • Your favorite Barbeque Sauce


To Oven Bake: Season meat with celery, onion & garlic salt mixed with liquid smoke. Marinate overnight, wrap in foil. To bake, add Worcestershire sauce, salt & pepper rub. Bake at 300 degrees for 5-6 hours. Cover loosely. One hour before completed cover with barbeque sauce.

To Grill: Heat grill to 350 degrees. Place the brisket fat side down over a direct flame and cook about 10 minutes. Flip and grill the other side for about another 10 minutes. 

Reduce grill heat to 250 degrees. Move brisket to a cooler area on the grill and close the lid. Cook 2 hours. When the brisket temperature reaches 180 degrees, wrap the brisket in a large piece of foil crimping the edges up slightly so it will catch the juices from the meat as it finishes cooking.

Close the grill id & continue cooking until the meat reaches 200 degrees for about another 45 minutes.

Transfer the brisket wrapped in foil to a cutting board and let rest 30 minutes.

Brush your favorite barbeque sauce over the brisket. Slice brisket against the grain and serve between your favorite sandwich buns.
