How to cook brisket in a convection oven

Updated June 05, 2018

A brisket is a piece of meat that came from the front end of a cow. It is often referred to as a corned beef brisket. Cooking briskets are ideal when cooking for a large group of people. Briskets are also economical because the left overs can be prepared in sandwiches or soups. If you plan on using a convection oven to cook your brisket, you will want to follow a few simple directions to keep it nice and moist.

Preheat the convection oven to 149 degrees Celsius.

Rinse the brisket under cold water.

Set the brisket in a cooking bag with the fat side up. Twist the end of the bag before placing a twist tie around it.

Place the cooking bag in a baking pan and poke several holes in the top of the bag to let out steam.

Set the baking pan in the convection oven and cook for three hours. When the brisket is finished, wait 15 minutes before carving it so the juices can settle.


If you don't have a cooking bag, use a roasting pan with a lid. Do not remove the lid to check on the brisket while it is cooking. This will cause heat to escape and lower the temperature within the pan. Peppercorns and cloves are great spices to use on a brisket. Rub them on right before the brisket is put into the oven.


Make sure your brisket reaches an internal temperature of 87.8 degrees C. If it doesn't, you need to cook it longer.
