We normally look at a recipe of a certain dish if we have not tried cooking it or can’t remember the ingredients and procedure. We can’t just mix all the ingredients however we wanted. In a recipe, a procedure must be followed accordingly to come up with the best result. As a person who loves to cook, I always refer to a cooking recipe if I found an interesting dish to try on. If I liked the dish, it’s going to be included in my list for possible food to be cooked if there is an occasion.
Same with barbecue, which I thought doesn’t have many recipes. I used to think that there is only one barbecue recipe- the one that I knew wherein you marinate the meat and barbecue it- that simple. But, I was wrong. There is more to barbecue flavors than I can imagine and the best example is the barbecue brisket recipe.
Cooking barbecue brisket will take a lot of time, but the end result is a wonderfully flavored brisket that gets away from the sweet and sour type. The purpose of the beer is to tenderize the meat, however if you use a larger brisket, double the other ingredients, but use only 1 ½ times the amount of beer, otherwise, the meat will get too soft.

o 1 ( 5- pound) brisket
