Barbecue Beef Brisket
This recipe came together as a result of using what I had on hand. My hubby and my son both declared it was “awesome”.

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon celery seed
1/4 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
2-1/2 pound beef brisket, trimmed

1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
1 teaspoon liquid smoke, optional
1 to 2 tablespoons corn starch
