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!
