MY REVIEW

I will never use any other recipe. This is the *one I will use from now on. The aroma filled my entire house and I couldn't wait to try it! After trying my first bite-the flavor did not disappoint! I will never use another brisket recipe. So glad I found this. Thank you so much for sharing. All of my friends and family were raving the whole night.

Love the flavor! I used 2 2-1/2 pound briskets that were thin cut (like a ham steak) and they cooked in about 4 hours. The BBQ coated the shreds, but it was not overly saturated with sauce. If you like a lot of sauce be sure to use a smaller brisket or more sauce.
