- 2 pounds (910 g) beef brisket
- 1 teaspoon meat tenderizer
- cup (120 ml) oil
- cup (120 ml) cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 2 tablespoons (30 ml) Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon Splenda

Sprinkle one side of the brisket with teaspoon of the tenderizer and pierce the meat all over with a fork.
Turn it over and repeat.
Put the brisket in a shallow, nonreactive pan.
Mix together the remaining ingredients.
Reserve some marinade for basting, pour the rest over the brisket, and turn it once or twice to coat.
Let the brisket marinate for several hours at least, and overnight is great.
At least 3 hours before dinner, set up your grill for indirect cooking (put the coals on one side of the grill or leave half the burners off on a gas grill).
Add wood chips or chunks.
Smoke the brisket for about 3 hours or until tender.
Mop the brisket with the reserved marinade every half hour or so, using a clean utensil each time you baste.
