  1. Spray a large roasting pan with nonstick spray. Place onions in pan; place brisket on top of onions. Rub meat on all sides with garlic, seasonings, jam, and lemon juice. Pour cola over and around brisket. Marinate for an hour at room temperature or overnight in the refrigerator.

  2. Preheat oven to 325°F. Cook covered. Allow 45 minutes per pound as the cooking time, until meat is fork tender. Uncover meat for the last hour and baste it occasionally.

I don't make brisket very often because it is very high in fat. But when I do this is always the top request. The brisket just falls apart. Yumm-o
