Even if you are smoking or grilling a brisket, this marinade will add a lot of flavor and help keep the meat tender. The better process for this is soaking the brisket in for a minimum 24 hours to let the flavor deep into the meat. To make the meat more tender use a sour based marinade like lemon or lime juice or any type of vinegar. Add seasoning of your choice. Brisket is usually seasoned either sweet or hot. If you want hot, add your favorite hot chili peppers. For sweet pack the brisket in brown sugar overnight. The sugar will mostly melt by morning and can be a sticky mess so make sure if you do this, to wrap it tightly in foil or plastic and put it on a large platter in the refrigerator.
