Grilled Brisket With Cranberry BBQ Sauce
The combination of the spicy brisket and the tangy BBQ sauce is a perfect marriage of flavors.
Cranberry BBQ Sauce
To a bowl add:
1 small bottle any sweet BBQ sauce
1 cup cranberry sauce
1tsp garlic powder.
Whisk until smooth.
Brisket is very tough, so needs to be parboiled before grilling.
Add brisket to a 4quart pan of water and boil for about 2-3hours or until very tender.
Remove the brisket from the water, and cool a little while, so it wont fall apart on the grill.
Trim away fat on the surface of the brisket, after it has cooled.
When grilling, since the brisket is actually already cooked, you just want it to brown slightly and get a bit of a dry crust , so the BBQ sauce wont slide off.
Baste on BBQ allow it to glaze a bit, turn, baste, glaze. I usually baste both sides 2-3 times.
