Cooking it slowly helps makes it tender and also brings out the flavor.

Barbecue Beef Brisket
For the rub:
2 tablespoons Kosher salt
2 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons granulated garlic
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground chipotle pepper
1 teaspoon ground mustard
For the mop:
1 cup red wine vinegar
1 cup tomato juice
1 cup water

Mix the rub together and apply liberally to a two-pound piece of beef brisket. Place the brisket in the oven at 275 degrees for four hours, turning the brisket over every hour and applying a half cup of the mop sauce.
