Tangy Beef Brisket Recipe

We like the sauce for my brisket over elk, moose and venison salami as well. And we also use it to spice hamburgers and hot dogs we sizzle on the grill. -Jacque Watkins, Green River, Wyoming

I never made a brisket before I tried this recipe and it was a hit with my family. This will definitely be in our recipe rotation.

Forgot to say that I cooked it in my roaster (since I made for 24 people).

I had made brisket once before with another recipe, but made this for a Christmas dinner I cooked for my co-workers. Mouth-wateringly good. The sauce is absolutely wonderful!! Can't wait to make it for a family gathering!

MY REVIEW

I have made brisket with this recipe several times and in fact have one in the oven now! We live in the south so the BBQ bar is high, and we love this recipe. It is just about as good as eating out.
