For my wedding we had our luncheon – immediately after the wedding ceremony – at a Brazilian restaurant downtown called Tucanos where they bring around the most incredible array of meats you can imagine, from bacon-wrapped chicken to beef tenderloin and glazed pork, hot off these giant skewers.

We’d been there a couple of times while we were dating and couldn’t get enough so we made it part of our Big Day. Every time we go to that restaurant I get especially excited about one particular dish that they make, and that my friends is the brisket. I don’t know what they put in or on that brisket but sweet heaven it is magical. I’ve had a special place in my heart for brisket ever since the first glorious bite.

One of these days I’m going to have an awesome Brazilian brisket recipe for you but it’s not quite here yet. In the meantime I’m sharing my very favorite slow cooker honey bbq beef brisket that is equally magical as that restaurant brisket and not just because you can whip it up any time in your own kitchen.

It’s slow cooked to fall-apart juicy and tender beef perfection, all smothered in a mouthwatering sweet and tangy honey bbq sauce. Just fifteen minutes of hands-on time and the crockpot does the rest. Serve it up by itself with a side of baked beans and Texas toast, or pile it on a bun and call it a bbq brisket sandwich – you cannot go wrong anyway you devour this goodness.

Can i make this with a frozen brisket? If i dont have 10 hours to cooK on low, can i cook it on high for fewer hours?

    Brisket is a tough cut of beef so for most tender results it’s best to cook low and slow! You could try high for 4 hours but it probably won’t be AS tender.

    If it’s frozen it’s difficult to get the rub to stick to the meat, it should be at least partially thawed and patted dry before doing the rub.

Dish looks amazing and will be cooking it over the weekend. Is there any Harm in browning the meat first?

Thanks!

    No harm- go for it! I hope you love this recipe!

      Thanks Tiffany! Would you say season before or after Browning?

        I like to season a tad before browning! Personal preference šŸ™‚

This looks amazing! My husband can have honey. Would it still take good without the hOney?

    The honey is a key player for sure in this recipe.. I haven’t ever made it without so I can’t say for sure!

Can I make this in a pressure cooker? If so how ling for 3kg of meat please?

    Hi Kristy! I haven’t tried making this recipe in a pressure cooker so I have no idea where to start! Definitely trial and error. Let me know how your experience goes if you give it a try!

Could you marinate the beEf ovenight before slow cooking?

    Hi Janessa! I haven’t tried doing that for this recipe, so I can’t guarantee the results. But I think it could work!
