Warning: Keep a close eye on this tangy pot of goodness; it’s been fine-tuned to perfection and tends to vanish at gatherings. —Aysha Schurman, Ammon, Idaho

"What is "cooking liquid" it isn't on the list of ingredients. Same as liquid smoke? If so, please use the same words in directions as in ingredients. PLEASE"

"I flollowed recipe exactly. My husband and I both thought it was very bland. A waste of a brisket. I threw away the sauce, doctored up the leftovers and had French dips the 2nd night."

"The brisket seemed kind of expensive but it was well worth it. Meat was very tender and the tomato beef gravy over the top of it was out of this world. Delicious with a capital D. Made a ton of gravy compared to the amount of meat I had though. Will definitely make this again! Followed the recipe exactly and I wouldn't change a thing."

"This was really good. I didn't have a brisket in the freezer so I used a round roast - and fire roasted diced tomatoes in lieu of Italian crushed. There were absolutely NO leftovers - big hit with the family."
