  • 56 lb beef brisket
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary, coarsely chopped
  • 5 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves stripped and chopped
  • 1/4 cup kosher salt
  • 12 Tablespoons olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix garlic, rosemary, thyme, and salt in a small bowl.
  3. Line the bottom of a shallow roasting pan with foil allowing enough to come up and around the sides to parcel your beef.
  4. Place the beef (fat side up) in the foil lined roaster and rub with olive oil.
  5. Sprinkle the herb rub generously all over the beef and rub well with your hands.
  6. Cover with foil.
  7. Cook for 1 hour at 350 degrees. Then, reduce heat to 275 degrees and continue to cook for 6-8 hours, until meat is tender.
  8. When brisket is fully cooked, remove from oven and allow to sit. Carve meat thinly against the grain.
