Nummy! And so very very easy! Like another lady who posted a review I also used a blend of ketchup and BBQ sauce in the absence of chili sauce. And it turned out great. The nicest part is that I did it in the crock pot...put everything in at lunch time and it was ready for dinner. If you want to try it in the crock pot I put it in for four hours at High then did one more hour with the lid off stirring every once in a while so the sauce would thicken up. Crock pot is definitely the way to go. I also slided the bricket very thin adn returned it to the sauce for a few minutes. Then piled it onto fresh kaiser buns. Wow! Read More

I tried a slightly revised version of this recipe adding real onion slices instead of the powder. Overall it turned out fine. I enjoyed the slightly sweet and spicy taste from the cola and the chile. Actually I was expecting a strong syrupy taste but was pleasantly surprised. At 325 the beef came out tender and juicy making for several fine meals that go well with mashed potatoes or rice. However I felt the recipe could be jazzed up a bit without overpowering the natural beef flavor. To round out and complement the sweet spicy BBQ flavor perhaps rub a little coarse sea salt (one or two teaspoons) or even add a bit of thyme to give it a more complex flavor. Read More

This is a great recipe. As with everyone, I played with the ingredients though. The night before I rubbed the meat down with salt, pepper and paprika and then put chopped onions and garlic under and over it. I increased all ingredients so that I was sure to have plenty of sauce. I opted for a combo of chili sauce, ketchup and a bit of barbecue sauce. I also used Goodmans soup mix which isn't heavy on the dehydrated onions. It was absolutely perfect. Read More

This was good and very easy. I would make this again but I do have a better brisket recipe (it takes a lot time and effort). The brisket was very tender. Read More

I saw this recipe demonstrated on Gary Collin's old TV show (I think it was called "Home') around 11 or 12 years ago. I've been making it ever since. It's an easy way to impress your dinner guests. Everyone loves it. Maybe everyone knows this but the chili sauce is the kind that is next to the ketchup in the supermarket not salsa or taco sauce. Read More

This was soooo easy and a huge hit! I prepared the brisket with a dry rub of garlic salt, pepper, and paprika. Then I used Gates BBQ sauce instead of chili sauce, a can of C2 (the lower-carb coke), and the soup mix. I put it all in the crockpot about noon on low and left for the day. When we came home around six, it was done and the house smelled great! We used the left-overs the next day for sandwiches. I am a real novice when it comes to cooking so I was impressed at how easy it was to make a restaurant-quality brisket. I will definitely be making this again! Read More

This is an incredibly easy and delicious recipe. I used my slow cooker and baked it at 300 for 4-5 hours. (Just watch it well because the carmel in the Pepsi will burn if it's left too high without ample liquid.) I added an extra half can of Pepsi at the last hour to make a bit more liquid to cook 2 briskets at once. My father who eats nothing "new" had seconds on this one! Mom is jealous cause he never tries "new" stuff at home but will eat it at our house:) I thought the Pepsi would scare him away but he cleaned the plate and he is a PICKY eater!! Kids loved it too!!!

I trimmed the fat off my 2.5 lb brisket and made the recipe as written. It was awesome. I served it with salad roasted new potatoes and brussels sprouts. My husband wants me to throw away my other brisket recipes and serve this often. Thank you! Read More
