BBQ Beef Brisket or Roast Beef


  • 1 – 6 lb beef brisket or beef roast.  (We recommend sirloin tip roast, chuck roast, or brisket from Kilgus Farmstead)
  • 1/2 cup bbq spice rub.  (We recommend Pottstown BBQ rub found at Kilgus Farmstead Country Store)
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon finely ground coffee
  • black pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar

Rub the brisket or roast generously with spice blend, cover and let marinate overnight in refrigerator.Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Put the  beef, fat cap up, in a roasting pan. Add 1 cup water to the pan and roast the beef uncovered for 1 hour.

In a medium bowl, combine the coffee, brown sugar, pepper to taste, 3 cups hot water and the cider vinegar.

Remove the beef from the oven, pour the coffee mixture over the beef, cover with foil and  braise until beef reaches an internal temperature of 185 and is fork tender, about 3 hours (2 to 2 1/2 hours if using Jersey beef). . Remove to a carving board to let rest.

Cook the braising liquid in the roasting pan on the stove top, skimming fat and allow to reduce just slightly or to desired consistency.

Thinly slice the beef  across the grain.  We also will put a roast in a  crock pot on low for 8 hours with these ingredients.  The roast beef will shred instead of slice.  Still very tasty!  ENJOY!
