BBQ Beef Brisket

I mentioned on my other blog we recently bought a 1/8 of a cow for our freezer. I don't cook a ton of red meat, so I figured these 50 lbs of beef would last us about a year, assuming I used one pound of beef a week. About a month after getting the DELICIOUS meat, I realized that I hadn't been using my planned 1 lb per week. I need to pick up the pace! Already!

I rummaged around the different cuts of meat for something interesting, and found a wide flat cut called a brisket. And, oh, am I glad I did!
For the meat:
1 C water, plus more to cover
1/4 C worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp vinegar
1/2 tsp chili powder
1 Tbsp brown mustard
2 minced cloves garlic
1 cube beef bouillon
1 cut beef brisket, trimmed of most fat and cut to fit in your crockpot, if necessary

Put the beef in the crockpot. Mix all the sauce ingredients together and pour over the beef. Add water to cover the beef. Cook on low for 12 hours or more. Shred with a fork and serve on buns covered in BBQ sauce*.

* I made my own BBQ sauce, but I'm not 100% happy with it yet- it was too sweet- so I'll post the recipe later when I'm content with the results
