I didn't have time to bake this so I used a slow-cooker instead. It was just okay. We added BBQ sauce to it when serving. I've had better brisket so I will not be using this recipe again even though it wasn't terrible. Just a taste thing for me.

No, this recipe didn't do it for us. Despite the fact it smelled great, it just didn't have much flavor. I used a 2.5 pound brisket but kept the measurements the same. I have much better and flavorful recipes for brisket I will stick with. Sorry!
