Preparation

  1. Place wagyu brisket into a gallon bag or large bowl.

  3. Place the brisket into the refrigerator and let it sit with the dry brine for a few hours or overnight.

  4. Coat the bottom of a large slow cooker with a little bit of your favorite BBQ sauce.

  5. Place brisket fat side up into the slow cooker and pour remaining barbecue sauce over it.

  6. Set the slow cooker on low for 8 hours.

  7. Once it is done, carefully remove the brisket and place on a cutting board. Slice the brisket against the grain, removing any big pieces of fat.
