Step 1

In a small saucepan, combine brown sugar, ketchup, water, cider vinegar, 1/4 cup of canola oil, dark corn syrup, mustard, horseradish, and garlic; cook and stir over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes or until brown sugar is dissolved. Transfer to a disposable foil pan.

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Brown brisket on both sides. Place in foil pan, turning to coat with sauce. Cover pan tightly with foil.

Place pan on grill rack over indirect medium heat. Grill, covered, 2 to 2 1/4 hours or until meat is tender.

Remove from heat. Remove brisket from pan; tent with foil and let stand 10 minutes. Meanwhile, skim fat from sauce in pan. Cut brisket diagonally across the grain into thin slices; serve with sauce.
