Oven Roasted Beef Brisket

The oven roasted beef brisket is another recipe that many of my friends and acquaintances would not attempt. Of course it's fun to grab a pastrami sandwich from a local deli store but they just simply won't attempt it because they think it is too complicated and beyond their expertise.
Truth be told, I thought the same, until one day I read a recipe. I went over to the butcher shop, bought a nice brisket, and was pleasantly surprised.
I don't have a smoker, and did not want to do it in a slow cooker, so I worked with the cooking time in the oven and came up with what tasted much like - if not better - than any deli brisket sandwich I had ever tasted.
The dry rub is simple and uses the basics: garlic powder, onion powder, salt, brown sugar, dry mustard, mustard seeds, bay leaf, etc. Trust me, there's nothing in this recipe that you don't have or cannot do.
So what are you going to do now? You're going to your butcher!
