  1. Wrap the brisket entirely in bacon slices, and place into a large glass baking dish. Mix together the coffee and salt. Pour the coffee mixture over the brisket, cover, and marinate in the refrigerator overnight.
  2. In a saucepan over low heat, combine the butter and minced garlic. Cook stirring occasionally until butter is melted, and has turned golden. Spread all of the shortening onto the inside of a roasting pan. Place the brisket in the pan with one cup of the coffee marinade. Lay slices of the fatback over the roast. Place sweet potatoes around the perimeter of the roasting pan. Pour the garlic butter over the roast and potatoes. Let stand for 1 hour. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C)
  3. Cover the roasting pan with aluminum foil, and bake for 4 hours in the preheated oven. The internal temperature of the roast should be at least 145 degrees F (62 degrees C) when taken with a meat thermometer. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
  4. While you wait for the roast, stir together the olive oil and horseradish in a small saucepan. Cook over low heat for at least half an hour, then pour into a small bowl. This is the dipping sauce for the brisket.

Wow!! This was awesome! Very tender!

This brisket is the best I have ever had. My family loved it as much as I did! I have to admit, though, I was very skeptical about marinating the meat in coffee, and the amount of the spices, ...

This was ok. It wasn't nearly as flavorful as I expected it to be, and the garlic flavor just seems to disappear. I added one onion, cut into eight pieces along with the sweet potatos and left...

Absolutley a Keeper. As previous reviews suggested, I eliminated the shortening and fatback. Used 1 stick of butter to saute the garlic. The meat was very tender. The sweet potatoes were great. ...

Maybe it was the meat from Sams Club, or maybe it was that I didnt use the fatback (whatever that is) or I didnt marinate all night just most of the day. This was tough...I counldnt cut it. The ...

This was the MOST flavorful, tender brisket we've ever tasted. Do not be detered by the amount of garlic...the first hour or so in the oven it will make your eyes water...but it cooks down to a...
