1. Wash hands with soap and water.

2. In a small bowl, combine sea salt, chili powder, 1 1/4 teaspoons garlic powder, 2 teaspoons brown sugar, 1 teaspoon pepper, cumin and onion powder.

3. Place brisket on a large piece of plastic wrap. Generously rub spice mixture on all sides of brisket; wrap in plastic wrap and let marinate in the refrigerator for 4-8 hours. Wash hands after handling raw meat. Note: If you don’t have time, the brisket will still be plenty flavorful, cooked right away.

4. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine vinegar, water, oil, 1/4 cup brown sugar, ketchup, 2 teaspoons garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, red pepper flakes and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; bring to a slow rolling boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer for 15 minutes; remove from heat and set aside. Reserve 1/2 cup.

5. Prepare grill for indirect heat on medium-low. Place brisket, fat-side-up, on unheated side of grill. Grill for 1 hour.

6. Baste with vinegar mixture, flip and continue to grill for 4 hours or until the internal temperature on a meat thermometer reaches 195 degrees Fahrenheit, flipping and basting every 30 minutes. Remove from grill, wrap in foil and let rest for 10 minutes before serving. Serve with reserved sauce.
