Here we go...trying something a little different. I've put chopped tomatoes, cilantro, and peppers in the pan and added kidney and pinto beans. The brisket will rest on that. The brisket is about 4 pounds. I've rubbed olive oil on it and then rubbed a bunch of spices - parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme , chili powder, garlic powder, tarragon, black pepper, mustard powder, bay leaves, basil. A little this and that. Put in the oven at 225 uncovered. This will take a while. Started at 8:30am.
