BBQ Beef Brisket

1 Tbsp dried thyme
1 Tbsp paprika
2 teaspoons pepper
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon cumin

3 pounds of brisket (Trim all fat!)
1/2 teaspoon of liquid smoke
2 Tablespoons of Worcestershire Sauce
1 1/2 cups of BBQ sauce of choice (I used Jack Daniel's BBQ sauce - awesome!)

Mix all dry ingredients together for rub.  Trim the brisket of all visible fat - yes, that means that big slab on the top, ugh!  Rub roast with liquid smoke, then dry spice rub.  Pour Worcestershire sauce and BBQ sauce in a slow cooker.  Place seasoned brisket on top.  Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours.  Can cook on high for 5-6 hours.  I shred the meat, mix it back in with the sauce, and serve it on rolls like a pulled pork sandwich.  You can also slice it and serve it with the sauce.  This is SO good, and got rave reviews from the whole family!  I served it with seasoned roasted sweet potatoes, and regular potatoes and a salad. For the potatoes - peel and slice about 2 pounds of white and sweet potatoes.  Toss with 1/4 cup olive oil mixed with Lipton Recipe Secrets Savory Herb and Garlic soup mix.  Bake at 450 degrees about 30 - 40 min, turning potatoes every 10 minutes.
