Lazy Texas Brisket

Lazy Texas Brisket

For the main course in my in-laws’ birthday celebration, we decided to make this Lazy Texas Brisket again. This time around, we weren’t able to find a brisket, so we got a nice grass-fed top eye round roast from the Farmers’ Market. We also used some garlic from our garden in the rub. Dino wanted to revamp the barbecue sauce, and it turned out extremely well. The roast we got was on the small side, and we overcooked it a bit, but it was still nice and juicy, and the sauce helped it out, too.
