Reviews for Tender Barbecued Brisket
"I made this brisket for a family get-together. I had all of the marinade ingredients on hand which is one reason that I chose this recipe. I took it out after the 4 hours and it was so delicious, moist and tender that my husband didn't want me to add the barbecue sauce to it because he didn't want me to "mess with perfection". So, I can attest that the brisket was absolutely delicious without the sauce. However, I think that adding the barbecue sauce will give a bit of sweetness to the brisket that will complement the savory flavor."
