Reviews for Barbecue Beef Brisket Sandwiches

The note at the top of this recipe says "The secret to a good barbecued beef sandwich is in the sauce." Since one of the main sauce ingredients is simply listed as "barbecue sauce" with no hint of what type to use, I guess it is a secret.
Regarding OhBarbi's comment, there isn't a marinade to this recipe. The brisket just cooks in a homemade sauce.
We apologize for the confusion and it will be corrected here soon.

The author mentions marinating. ? Are some of the first few ingredients, such as canola oil, etc., meant for a marinade?
I made this last night my husband loved it. I couldnt find the beef brisket so i used skirt skeak instead turned out really good.
My husband used to fret so much while barbecuing briskets that I sought a recipe he could relax with and still be proud of the results. This is it. It makes the best sandwiches!
