Although most of us living in high-rise apartments don't have access to a full-size barbecue in the backyard, it’s possible to achieve almost the same level of success with just an oven! Now, die-hard barbecue fanatics may dismiss this as "cheating" or "not the real deal”, but I prefer to be pragmatic and try to make the best of what I have. Plus, trust me when I tell you that no one will care as long as the end result tastes good!
Here are two quite similar recipes, which yielded slightly different results. One uses just a regular convection oven, the other a combination of a sous-vide circulator and oven. Cooking sous-vide will deliver more tender meat, but oven roasting gives you a texture more similar to a traditional barbecue. Regardless of which method you choose, finish up by brushing your beef with a ready-made barbecue sauce, such as this Eckart Grill Sauce, and roasting on a high heat in the oven for that crusty, sticky “bark” which makes barbecued meat so very delicious!
Ingredients1.5 kg of beef brisket or shoulder
For the dry rub:4 tbsp whole black peppercorns2 tbsp coarsely ground sea salt(Optional) 1 tbsp cocoa nibs
For the glaze:½ cup Eckart Spicy Grill Sauce1 tbsp sugar(Optional) 1 tsp chipotle or paprika powder
