Tasty Tuesday-District 12 Beef Brisket

This recipe calls for a great big cut of meat called a brisket.  I can imagine that Katniss from Suzanne Collins' book, Mockingjay has had a chance to cook something similar after a hunting expedition with Gale.  Living in District 12 forced Katniss to be frugal and she would approve of the amount of people this recipe feeds for the price.  If you need to feed a crowd, this is a great recipe.  Be aware that is takes awhile to cook. 

District 12 Beef Brisket

8-9 pounds well-trimmed brisket
1 t each clery salt, onion salt, garlic salt
1 bottle liquid smoke
3 t salt
1/2 t pepper
3 T Worchestershire sauce
1/2-3/4 bottle of BBQ sauce (I add more if the meat is dry)

In a broiler or low pan, pour liquid smoke over trimmed beef.  Combine the 3 salts and sprinkle over both sides of meat.  Cover with foil and refridgerate overnight.
In the morning, sprinkle with salt and pepper and Worchestershire  sauce.  Cover with foil and bake in a 225' preheated oven for 7 hours.  Uncover and drain liquid.  Pour on the BBQ cause.  Back for 45 minutes to an hour.  Meat should be easily shreddable.  Serve on buns.
