    Sweet Onion Brisket Of Beef Carbonnade

    5-7 lbs. fresh beef brisket (well trimmed)
    1 med. red bell pepper; finely chopped
    2 tsp. dried rosemary needles
    4 cloves garlic; pressed or minced
    2 whole bay leaves
    1 1/2 cup chili sauce (your favorite)
    2 tsp. salt
    1 can (12 oz.) beer (your favorite)
    1 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
    1/2 cup beef broth
    4 lg. Vidalia sweet onions, sliced
    2 Tbs. light brown sugar
    1/2 lb. fresh mushrooms; sliced
    1 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
    4 ribs celery with leaves; sliced

    Place the trimmed brisket, fat side up, in a 12" Dutch oven . Season with the rosemary, bay, salt and pepper. Arrange the sliced onions, mushrooms, celery (with leaves), bell pepper and garlic over the meat. In a medium-size mixing bowl, combine all of the remaining ingredients, whisk well, then pour the mixture over the top of everything in the oven. Cover and bake using 6-8 briquettes bottom and 10-12 briquettes top for 4 hours replacing briquettes every hour. Baste meat often with pan drippings.

    When meat is tender remove from oven and let rest for 5 minutes then carve brisket against the grain in 1/4" thick slices. Serve with the pan juices and onions, etc...

    Note: This recipe works well when the oven is buried in hot ashes and allowed to slow cook all day.

    Serves: 6-8

    Sounds really good, I am a trained chef, but just bought my first Dutch oven last week... Still need to learn temperature control :)
