11 Brisket Recipes Guaranteed To Impress Any Dinner Guest

Fear the brisket no more.

Brisket, in all its tender glory, is an intimidating dish.

The methods of cooking a brisket -- in the oven, over a grill, in a smoker -- can be overwhelming, never mind the hours it takes to make one just right.

But if intimidation is the reason you've never attempted to whip up your own brisket, you're making a huge mistake. This meat, which can be savory, sometimes sweet, and fall-off-the-fork tender, is sure to impress any dinner guest. And the effort is definitely worth it since the leftovers can be even better on day two.

We've gathered a variety of the best homemade brisket recipes -- some deliciously traditional, while others take a new spin on the delectable cut -- and added them to our entertaining arsenal.
