Reviews for Smoked Beef Brisket
"While this recipe is OK, there is no smoked flavor to it. It tastes more like Swiss Steak. The ingredients list is short, which is good if you want to get something into the slow cooker quickly. If you really want a smoked flavor, it might be worth trying and increasing the amount of liquid smoke.There is a brisket recipe in the book "Cheater BBQ" which makes brisket as good as can be obtained from a BBQ joint. I'll try some other brisket slow cooker recipes I've found but this one for me is not a keeper."
