This brined brisket and bagel treat is a great excuse to get the gang over.

It takes a week for the beef to brine, so it makes an ideal weekend activity, ready for you to enjoy the following weekend. And, seeing as you’ll need to be a little patient while the brining process does its thing, why not use the time to conjure up a couple of jars of homemade dill pickles?
