bbq brisket sandwich

It might sound different when adding Salsa Maya to BBQ but trust me it is perfect! The sweet tangy bbq sauce goes great with Salsa Maya and it adds an extra kick to the traditional summer sandwich. The following recipe can be as easy as you want it to be.. you can purchase already smoked brisket from your favorite BBQ place or go to your local meat store and purchase a small brisket.

[ It is quite hard to find a "small brisket" so if you have left overs you can freeze it and use it on baked potatoes, tacos and many more delicious things with Salsa Maya!] 

For the Brisket: (if you are making it yourself)

2 tablespoons salt
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons dry mustard
1 bay leaf, crushed
4 pounds beef brisket, trimmed
1 1/2 cups beef stock

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
1.Make a dry rub by combining salt, garlic and onion powders, black pepper, sugar, dry mustard, and bay leaf. 2.Season the raw brisket on both sides with the rub. Place in a roasting pan and roast, uncovered, for 1 hour.
3.Add beef stock and enough water to yield about 1/2 inch of liquid in the roasting pan. Lower oven to 300 degrees F, cover pan tightly and continue cooking for 3 hours, or until fork-tender.
4. Trim the fat and chop . Top with juice from the pan.
