2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons black pepper
2 cups Texas-style barbecue sauce (served on the side and preferably homemade)

Directions:
Texas barbecue is all about the slow cooking and the smoke over low indirect heat. First, put some mesquite wood in water to soak. Rub the brisket thoroughly on all sides with salt and pepper. Let the brisket come to room temperature. Meanwhile, in the bottom of a covered grill, build a small charcoal or log fire on one side (against the side of the grill) for indirect heat. When the fire is ready, add the mesquite. (Put mesquite in foil with holes punched in the top and place over heat.) This will give a good smoky flavor to the meat. Place the brisket on the side opposite the fire so that none of the brisket is directly over the fire. Cover the grill and relax. You will need to add more fuel to the grill as needed to keep the temperature low (between 180 degrees and 220 degrees) for the next 8 to 10 hours. When the brisket is ready, remove from the grill, cut off any excess fat and slice thin. Serve with barbecue sauce on the side.
Note: If the 10 hours over the grill is just too long to handle, you can get a good result by smoking for 3 4 hours and then putting in the oven for another 4 5 hours on 225 degrees.
