Ingredients
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 3 pounds beef brisket , fat trimmed
  • 1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke
  • 1 1/2 cups barbecue sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
Directions
  1. In a small bowl, mix together the thyme, paprika, salt, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne, and cumin.
  2. Rub beef with the liquid smoke to coat, then rub with the spice mixture.
  3. Lightly coat a 6-quart oval slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. Pour in the barbecue and Worcestershire sauce; stir together. Add beef and coat with the sauce.
  4. Cover and cook on low until fork tender, for 8-10 hours.
  5. Transfer beef to a cutting board; let rest, loosely covered with foil, about 20 minutes. Cut meat across the grain into 1/2-inch slices and serve with the sauce.
Recipe Notes

You might be tempted to use regular paprika and skip the liquid smoke, but for optimal results use smoked paprika, as listed - it’s rich in sweet and smoky flavor with a great depth to it, unlike its Hungarian counterpart. Additionally, the liquid smoke adds a wonderful mesquite flavor to the meat.
