Bourbon Bar-B-Que Brisket greens and rice feature

Whenever I even mention Bar-B-Que Brisket, let alone oven roasted with Bourbon, everyone I know wants some!  And guess what? … I don’t blame them; this Bourbon Bar-B-Que Brisket is melt in your mouth amazing!  Part of the fall apart flavorful results come from using the Reynolds® Oven Bag to slow cook this baby!  I partnered this brisket with some flavorful soulful sides.  The rice is good but add the garlic and butter and its incredible … the collards and kale, well let’s just say eating something good for you never tasted so freakin frat good!  Love this dish, hope you do too!

oh yeah baby!
