  • 3 lbs beef brisket flat cut
  • 4 tablespoon Smokey Bourbon Seasoning*
  • ½ onion minced
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 12 Toasted rolls cheese, red onions for serving


  • Coat the brisket generously with the seasoning mix. Wrap in plastic wrap and store in the fridge over night.
  • When ready to cook, place all ingredients (brisket fat side up) in the slow cooker. 
  • Cook on low for 9 to 10 hours, until brisket shreds easily with a fork. 
  • Carefully remove the fat from the top of the brisket, discard, and shred the meat. 
  • Return to slow cooker and toss, adding more barbecue sauce as needed to coat.
  • Serve as messy sandwiches on toasted rolls with melted cheese and red onions.


When you can pull it apart easily with just a fork you are good to go. 
Leftovers can be frozen easily for up to two months.
