The note at the top of this recipe says "The secret to a good barbecued beef sandwich is in the sauce." Since one of the main sauce ingredients is simply listed as "barbecue sauce" with no hint of what type to use, I guess it is a secret.

Regarding OhBarbi's comment, there isn't a marinade to this recipe. The brisket just cooks in a homemade sauce.We apologize for the confusion and it will be corrected here soon.Taste of Home Test Kitchen

The author mentions marinating. ? Are some of the first few ingredients, such as canola oil, etc., meant for a marinade?
