Combine thyme, paprika, pepper, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne, and cumin in a small bowl set aside. Rub brisket all over with liquid smoke, then rub with spice mixture. Pour Worcestershire and barbecue sauces into a slow cooker place beef on top. Cover, and cook on low 8-10 hours, until fork tender.

  • I have a recipe that is very similar. I cook and stir all ingredients except the beef until it simmers then cool slightly and pour over beef on both sides and wrap very tightly in foil. Refrigerate overnight and cook in a foli pam in a 250 degree oven for 8 hours. It is delicious.
