BBQ Grilled Brisket Slider and Crispy Onions


It’s often been said that sliders are just plain fun! Add your favorite protein and create your own masterpiece of flavors. Eat one as a snack or several as a meal.


  • Slider buns (#519)
  • Cooked & sliced brisket - about 2 lb. portion (See Chef's Tip)
  • BBQ rub
  • BBQ sauce
  • 1 medium onion, finely sliced (julienne)


For Brisket Rub:

  • Mix 1 tbsp brown sugar, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, chili powder, 2 tbsp salt & 2 tbsp pepper.
  • Cover brisket with the rub, place on the grill and cook for about 5 minutes on each side. Wrap in aluminum foil and keep cooking for another 8 minutes.
  • Remove and let rest. Slice thin, and reserve.

For the Onions:

  • In a mixing bowl, combine 1⁄2 cup flour, 2 tbsp paprika, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp pepper.
  • Add the finely sliced onions to coat. Fry in a small pan in about 2 tbsp of oil.

To Assemble Sandwich:

  • Place a few slices of the brisket over the slider bun, top with approximately 1 tsp of BBQ sauce of your choice, and top with a handful of the crispy onions for a crunchy finish.

Chef Tips:

This is a 4th of July favorite, and cooking the brisket ahead of time saves a lot of time when assembling sliders for a large crowd!
