Easy to fix in large amounts and freeze for later.

Excellent recipe!

This was amazing... my husband and guests loved it. I doubled sauce and marinade as others indicated, and added a total of 1 TB liquid smoke. We chopped everything up and served over baked potatoes with cheese, sour cream, onions, garlic scapes and jalapeno peppers..........WOW! I will definitely be making this many many more times... we were only sad there wasn't more left!

I am always looking for new crock pot recipes. This is my first time cooking brisket - followed the directions exactly and it was absolutely delicious. Family, including kids, loved it as well. I am planning on passing this recipe on - thanks so much!

Added 1 tbs liquid smoke & some Cattleman's BBQ sauce. Took a huge baked potato, filled it with butter, shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream, chopped green onions, over filled it with the brisket and added some chopped jalapenos to the top. It was awesome!

This is the easiest and best sauce! I too added a little worstershire and then carmelized the sauce over beef ribs that had been slow cooked all day. It was really amazing!! And I'm picky!

Oh how I wanted to like this recipe. I followed it exactly but it just wasn't good.

First, the meat had no flavor. It was tender of course, but I've never had tough meat come out of a slow cooker. OK, so no biggie because I figured the "sauce" would give it a flavor boost...

Now for the "sauce". It was way too sweet to use for passing. So I shredded the brisket, added lots of chilli powder and cayanne pepper to balance the sweetness, more garlic, some cumin for smokiness, and KC Masterpiece BBQ sauce. I took the sauce and poured it over the shredded brisket and mixed it up. My husband then bought some Kaiser rolls from the deli and we loaded the rolls up with the meat. It was still way too sweet for our liking, but at least the beef wasn't rendered inedible.

I didn't want to give this recipe less than 2 stars because there are some good ingredients here. But I really had to change it up so I couldn't even see givingit 3 stars. Next time I'll cut the brown sugar in half and nix the ketchup and butter. I'll also try adding liquid smoke for more of a bbq flavor.

This was excellent! Made the following changes: doubled both cooking marinade and sauce; added 1 tsp liquid smoke to cooking marinade and substitued chili sauce for half of ketchup in sauce recipe. This is a keeper.

First brisket - excellent results! Used cider vinegar and 1 tsp liquid smoke, as suggested by other reviewers. Shredded after 11 hours, another 1/2 hour back in the cooker. 2.2 lb brisket made four decent sandwiches (on big kaiser rolls) with a little left over. This is a keeper - cannot wait to make it again.

Superb BBQ. Only change we made was to use crushed red peppers because we were out of ground. Worked great & highly recommend this recipe!
