Reviews for Panhandle Beef Brisket
"Good brisket, a little dry though I have no idea why. The sauce was delicious."
"This is a KILLER recipe. I made it with a ranch coleslaw and the men at the table couldn't get enough. They said I should open my own restaurant. Try it, you won't regret it."
"We just smoked our brisket the traditonal way, but we used this sauce, and it was delicious!"
"Awesome. I loved it! It is my daughter's favorite.I would totally make it again. The best part is smelling it all afternoon while it cooks! Very easy to put together and the slow cooking does all the work for you!"
"My family loves this recipe. I have made it twice and will be making it again tomorrow. The only change I made is I use the splenda brown sugar. This is delicious and I don't get any complaints when this hits the table!"
