This is a recipe I got from my aunt and her family, it is time consuming but worth it. For a different size brisket, just bake 1 hour per pound.

Loved this recipe. The Brisket was very flavorful. I put the brisket in the crock pot after marinating. I decided to cook in the crock pot since everything drys out in the oven so quickly in Colorado. I also included the marinade in the crockpot for extra moisture and flavor after boiling it for three minutes in case of bacteria. I also added a 1/2 cup of water and set my crock pot for 6 hrs. It was perfect! I have never cooked with Liquid Smoke before and loved the flavor. My company loved it too! Read More

Good Lord!! Am I just this hungry or is this actually this tasty?! I think a little of both. I followed the recipe as written until it came time to cook it. I cooked it for 5 hours in my slow cooker (which does tend to run hotter than I believe it should). I got a wonderfully tender brisket without the usual mushiness that I get from cooking roasts in the slow cooker. The flavor was wonderful the texture was perfect. It's a keeper! The only thing I will try next time is to add pepper flakes or hot sauce to the marinade Read More

Recipe did not say whether to roast covered or not. I "tented" with aluminum foil as a compromise. My brisket was only 4 Lbs. so I cooked 1 hour less. I should have checked at 3-1/2 hours;it was starting to burn. I suspect the 5 star reviews had a fattier/more marbled brisket for more flavor. It did have a nice smoky flavor but nothing outstanding. I will try this one again with a fattier brisket or maybe in a slow cooker. Read More

Excellent blend of flavors. I had an 8 lb brisket so I almost doubled the marinade. I decided to "stab" the brisket with a sharp carving fork and then a sharp knife to allow the flavor of the marinade to penetrate throughout the meat. After having marinated in the refrigerator for about 18 hours I double wrapped the meat in heavy foil - placed in a roasting pan and baked at 225 for about 8 hours. Let cool in the foil - then set aside to cool before slicing. The juices were separated fat discarded and the juices boiled and reduced a bit. Really good flavor. Thank you Read More

My brisket was closer to 12 lbs., but I had to cut it in half to fit it in my roasting pan. I did triple the marinade because there was SOOO much brisket. I covered it with foil (and sealed it really well) and let it cook all day long. It was so tender and flavorful...my hubby couldn't stop raving. I have tried other brisket recipes before that we liked, but this one is definitely going to the head of the pack! Thanks for posting! Read More

this is a great recipe! i realized i didn't have any garlic salt for the marinade so i chopped up some fresh garlic and it worked just as well... the house smelled so good the whole time it was cooking...it reminded me and my family of grandma's great (lost) brisket recipe. i will definitely make this again though i might cut the cooking time by 45min to an hour as i was hoping it would be moister but all in all it was fabulous!

Delicious! The only thing I would add is that be sure to cover when roasting in the oven (the instructions don't specify this) and add just a bit of water to the pan before roasting also. Read More

I served a 10lb brisket at my last cookout and it was a big success. It'll leave a very dirty pan though. Read More
