“This is a recipe I got from my aunt and her family, it is time consuming but worth it. For a different size brisket, just bake 1 hour per pound.”

Loved this recipe. The Brisket was very flavorful. I put the brisket in the crock pot after marinating. I decided to cook in the crock pot since everything drys out in the oven so quickly in Colorado. I also included the marinade in the crockpot for extra moisture and flavor after boiling it for three minutes in case of bacteria. I also added a 1/2 cup of water and set my crock pot for 6 hrs. It was perfect! I have never cooked with Liquid Smoke before and loved the flavor. My company loved it too!

Good Lord!! Am I just this hungry or is this actually this tasty?! I think a little of both. I followed the recipe as written until it came time to cook it. I cooked it for 5 hours in my slow cooker (which does tend to run hotter than I believe it should). I got a wonderfully tender brisket, without the usual mushiness that I get from cooking roasts in the slow cooker. The flavor was wonderful, the texture was perfect. It's a keeper! The only thing I will try next time is to add pepper flakes or hot sauce to the marinade,



Recipe did not say whether to roast covered or not. I "tented" with aluminum foil as a compromise. My brisket was only 4 Lbs. so I cooked 1 hour less. I should have checked at 3-1/2 hours;it was starting to burn. I suspect the 5 star reviews had a fattier/more marbled brisket for more flavor. It did have a nice smoky flavor but nothing outstanding. I will try this one again with a fattier brisket or maybe in a slow cooker.
