3 tablespoons black peppercorns
2 tablespoons mustard seeds 
2 tablespoons coriander seeds 
2 tablespoons red pepper flakes 
1 tablespoon allspice berries 
10 juniper berries 
2 small cinnamon sticks 
2 to 4 bay leaves, crumbled 
2 tablespoons whole cloves


Remove from brine and rinse.

Place in a pot and add remaining ingredients. Top off with just enough water to cover the brisket and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until tender, about 3-5 hours depending on thickness.

Allow to cool in the liquid to room temp, remove, and refrigerate.
