Ingredients

Directions

Adjust the oven racks to fit a large Dutch oven; preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Rub the brisket with the paprika, 1 tablespoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Heat the oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the brisket and sear well on all sides, about 10 minutes. 

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together the ketchup, vinegar, molasses, brown sugar, mustard powder, bourbon, Worcestershire, 2 teaspoons salt and 1 cup water. Pour the barbecue sauce over the brisket. 

Cover the Dutch oven; transfer to the oven and cook, undisturbed, until the meat is tender, 3 1/2 to 4 hours. Transfer the brisket to a large bowl. Meanwhile, skim excess fat from the sauce in the Dutch oven and bring to a boil over medium heat on the stovetop. Boil until the sauce is thickened (you should have about 2 cups sauce), about 10 minutes. Season with more vinegar, bourbon, and salt, if desired. 

Pull the meat apart into large chunks and stir into about two-thirds of the sauce. Sandwich the meat on the potato rolls. Serve with extra sauce on the side.
