MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 10, 2013

My husband is the brisket expert, and he loved it! The flavors were great, and the meat was tender. I really appreciated that it didn't use a pre-bottled BBQ sauce.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 7, 2010

Tender and with good flavor. My husband loved it. You could easily prepare this partway on the day before and finish it in the oven the next day.
