Very easy, tender, and tasty brisket. For a small brisket, use 1 jar pickles. Be sure to trim brisket well. Dump in the dill pickle spears, juice and all! Just trust me on this one; the pickles cook down to almost nothing and the juice makes the meat super-tender!

Didn't change a thing - everyone loved it. It fed 10 people and many had seconds, some had thirds. One slight variation: I used sliced dill pickles because there were some kids who don't like to see anything they don't expect in their food. I strained out what pickles were left and chopped them into invisibility! Fooled them ;) Clever Papa! Read More

Worked well. Was a little too juicy after 7 hours, separated the juice and reduced it down; still a little "pickley"...but threw it on a Hawaiian bun with a little more BBQ sauce...worked REALLY well...almost no "pickley" then. Read More

This was easy and so delicious! My husband who does not like pickles of any kind loved it! Even the kids liked it which is rare for meat of this kind. I only had 28oz of pickles so I added 3/4 cup of chicken broth (not ideal but what I had.) We will definitely make this again! Read More
