  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C).
  2. Mix salt, black pepper, paprika, basil, oregano, garlic powder, and onion powder in a bowl; rub spice mixture over brisket.
  3. Arrange onion rings in the bottom of a roasting pan; lay brisket, fat-side up, atop onions. Scatter bay leaves around brisket. Pour beer over brisket. Cover roasting pan with an oven-proof lid or aluminum foil.
  4. Cook in the preheated oven for 8 hours. An instant-read thermometer should read an internal temperature of 145 degrees F (65 degrees C). Remove from oven and let rest for 1 hour before slicing.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Refrigerate cooked brisket for 8 hours and skim fat that has risen to the top if desired. At this point, you can slice brisket and reheat.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.
