BBQ flavoured brisket

Who would have thought this budget cut of meat could taste THIS good? It's now one of our firm favourites. Brisket is commonly used to make pastrami or here in the UK it's used for cheap pot roasts. We tried this idea some time ago and now like to cook this when we know we're going to be out and about. Today we were in the garden (expending a few calories) and really looked forward to this succulent beef dish. It was nice to know we could just leave it to cook without too much attention. We were more than ready to devour this after a couple of hours outside. If you don't have all the spices to hand, try simply seasoning with salt and pepper. The dish works out at around £1 per person. There'll be plenty left over for tomorrow's lunch. Here's the recipe:

Ingredients (serves 4-6)
1.25 kg brisket of beef
Then one teaspoon of each: 
smoked paprika 
ordinary paprika 
dried thyme 
salt and pepper
potatoes (if using)
chopped onions for the base of the oven dish
Begin by dry rubbing the brisket with the spices. Do this the night before if you have time, and unroll the brisket. In the UK we often find the brisket of beef rolled and ready for pot roasting. It's a budget cut of meat and well worth seeking out. Slow cooking will produce a succulent, juicy piece of melt in the mouth beef. Depending upon the amount of fat that comes with the joint, will depend on how much you need. We estimate around 200g per person.
Place the (unrolled) brisket on a bed of chopped onions and pour in a small cup of water. Cover in foil and place in the oven.
Cook for around 3.5 hours at 140ºC. Remove foil and turn the oven up to around 180ºC. Take the onions out and set them aside and put potatoes (if using) into the roasting pan. Cook the meat for a further half and hour then remove from the oven. Let it rest while the potatoes continue to cook until nice and crisp. 
We served ours with sweetcorn and a salad. You may like to have it with something else - like beans and coleslaw.
