Start off this delicious brisket recipe by making a coffee-cinnamon rub before roasting. You can smoke the brisket for 5 hours at 275 degrees Fahrenheit over apple or hickory chips instead of roasting it in the oven. If you like a smoky flavor but don’t have a smoker, you may use natural liquid smoke while roasting (but your brisket will also be delicious without). Use liquid smoke sparingly; some folks like to put it in a spray bottle and spritz the meat lightly. Yield: 8 servings.

1/4 cup ground coffeeCoffee-Cinnamon rubbed brisket
2 tbsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp black pepper
4-pound beef brisket, preferably with fat cap attached (ask the butcher)
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup liquid smoke (optional)

About an hour before you want to roast the meat (at least 6 hours before you eat), thoroughly mix coffee, cinnamon, sugar, salt and pepper together. Rub the meat with all of the mixture, which will give the meat a thick crust. Set the brisket in a roasting pan with the fat side up, to rest and come to room temperature.
