Remove brisket from the bowl, discard any remaining marinade and cover brisket with the rub. Wrap the meat in plastic and refrigerate from 8 hours to overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 170 degrees F (80 degrees C).
  3. Bake brisket in preheated oven for 8 to 10 hours. Slice across the grain of the meat.
