  1. Marinate the brisket in a mixture of the liquid smoke and Worcestershire sauce for 2-3 hours. Remove from the marinade, and cut slits all over the exterior of the meat. Insert slivers of onion and serrano pepper in the slits.

  2. Cover the brisket with a VERY liberal coating of paprika and lemon pepper. Wrap securely in heavy duty aluminum foil (use a drug-store wrap to prevent leakage).

  3. Place the brisket in an ovenproof rimmed dish (we used our trusty cast iron skillet) and place in a preheated 250 degree (F) oven for at least 16 hours.

  4. After the first 12-14 hours, you may unwrap the brisket briefly, and ladle out some of the accumulated juices for use in your own homemade barbecue sauce.
