4 lb. beef brisket, trimmed but leave the fat cap on top
1-2 cans beef broth
Southern Sisters Spice Rub (recipe below)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Season the brisket generously on both sides. Place in a roasting pan and cook, uncovered, for 1 hour.
Add enough beef broth to create about 1/2" of liquid in the bottom of the pan.
Lower oven temperature to 300 degrees, cover pan tightly, and continue cooking 3 hours or until brisket is fork tender. Let brisket rest for 20 minutes. Trim the fat and slice brisket across the grain. Spoon the juices over the brisket and serve.
