This is a wonderful and very easy recipe to throw in the slow cooker on those really busy days. It can be increased for a large group or downsized for 2 people. It reminds me of summers in Texas.

I thought this was alright. It was definitely no match for real smoked brisket and the depth of flavor. I bought the brisket at a whole sale club, so I just doubled the recipe as it fit in my crock pot. Make sure to have large containers of paprika, pepper, or other flavorings as it uses quite a lot. I am pretty certain it will all be eaten, but think I will go back to real smoked meat.

Very good, very easy. I've always wrapped my brisket in foil to make it in the crockpot. This recipe is great. I cooked mine o n low for nearly 8 hrs. The family really liked it. We did try to use the sauce from the drippings but too fatty to be good. Perhaps a good chill first? Will definitely do this again.
