I served for a senior luncheon and they loved it. The meat is always so moist

I tried this last night and it was fantastic!!! I made it exactly as written, except that I cooked it for 3-1/2 hours (I like my meat well done). That was too long - the edges burned a little. Next time I'll do it for 3 hours instead. The meat turned out very, very tender and moist, and the sauce was DELICIOUS. My entire family (including the kids) loved it. Hands-down the best brisket I have ever had. I will be making it many times again.

Lizeck...I am also doubling this recipe as a surprise for my husband's birthday tomorrow. Could you please advise me on how long to cook at what temp? Also...did you follow the directions on the recipe verbatim? Thanks so much for your help!

My brisket didn't get flavored with the sauce and the sauce was very runny, like water. We did enjoy the sauce flavor though.

I made this for my family. I got rave reviews. It was soo easy, I will definitely make this again and again. I doubled the recipe for 15 people hoping for left overs, but everyone loved it so much that there was not very much left over.

Sauce is terrific, meat is tender, family loves it. Have made it 10+ times since learning the recipe, and am now in the process of copying the recipe onto my own files so it won't be lost.
