    5. Soak the wood chips in water and wrap in foil cutting a few vent holes. Place in 2 aluminum foil containers.
    6. For a gas braai place the wood chips wrapped in foil with one filled with ½ cup of ice cubes underneath the cooking grate on the primary burner. Then place to foil containers with 2 cups of water mixed with Nestea Rooibos Powder on the secondary burner.

    11. In the meantime, preheat the oven to 135°C and once the brisket is done transfer to a baking tray and cover tightly with foil and place in the oven. Roast for about 2 hours until the meat is soft and tender.
    12. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 1 hour. Reserve any of the juices from the brisket.

    1. Combine together all the ingredients in a large bowl, cover and place in the fridge until needed.


    1. Cut the brisket into chunks and combine together with MAGGI Lazenby Worcestershire Sauce BBQ sauce.

    1. Smoking meats and vegetables allows an established flavor to come forward, the Nestlé Rooibos Powder is great for smoking and the rooibos flavor can lift any dish.
    2. Brisket is a low cost meat and thus is great to use in your establishment over sirloin, rump or fillet. The meat is tougher thus needs to be cooked longer but brings a greater flavor.
