Can I make this in my crockpot?

My husband just made this yesterday. When he first said he was making brisket, I was afraid of how it would turn out because I've had tough, stringy brisket before. But this was DELICIOUS! Only variation he made was that he smoked it a few hours first to get an "outdoors on the grill" flavor and finished it off in the oven. He has been cooking Sunday family dinner for a few years now, and this is his BEST beef dish ever! Can't wait to have it again and again.

I wanted to make brisket for Memorial Day but had never made it before. So I tried this recipe a week before on a small piece of brisket. My family loved it. So I made 10 lbs. of brisket with this recipe for Memorial Day. Everyone loved it! But I made a few changes to the sauce...I didn't use horseradish. I added about 3 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce and 3 Tbs. Frank's Red Hot Sauce and 1/4 cup apple sauce. I put everything in a blender instead of heating it. Then poured it on the brisket and baked it. It was delicious and will definitely make it again. I also used the sauce to bake chicken breasts in and they came out delicious. Definitely recommend this recipe!
