This is a wonderful and very easy recipe to throw in the slow cooker on those really busy days. It can be increased for a large group or downsized for 2 people. It reminds me of summers in Texas.

I thought this was alright. It was definitely no match for real smoked brisket and the depth of flavor. I bought the brisket at a whole sale club, so I just doubled the recipe as it fit in my crock pot. Make sure to have large containers of paprika, pepper, or other flavorings as it uses quite a lot. I am pretty certain it will all be eaten, but think I will go back to real smoked meat. Read More

MUCH TOO SALTY. I followed the recipe exactly as it was written. Cut the spices at least in half or plan on a SUPER SALTY meal! Read More

Very good, very easy. I've always wrapped my brisket in foil to make it in the crockpot. This recipe is great. I cooked mine o n low for nearly 8 hrs. The family really liked it. We did try to use the sauce from the drippings but too fatty to be good. Perhaps a good chill first? Will definitely do this again. Read More

The rub is quite versatile! I added a bit more liquid smoke to the sauce and used Sweet Baby Ray's Original. Cooked on HIGH for 5 hours (1-1/2 lb. brisket) till fork-tender. To the juices I whisked in 1/2 cup ketchup and 1/2 cup apple butter and reduced by half over medium heat on the stovetop. Delicious! Read More

Extremely easy recipe. It was very good. I used a 2.85 Lb brisket, but there was enough rub in the origial recipe to cover it. I upped the onion to a whole one, because we like cooked onion. And i put it under the brisket, instead of on top. However, I don't think I'm a cumin person. So next time, I'll either reduce, or remove it from the rub. Read More

Ive made this twice and really enjoy this recipe. It had a decent smokiness to It and was good to set and forget. The rub It's phenomenal. I must repeat myself here, the rub Is so good... I made it the first time with regular paprika and It turned out great. The second time I substituted half of the (regular) paprika with chipotle powder. Add some additional liquid smoke to give you some smokiness if you use regular paprika in lieu of smoked. Read More

This came out delicious! I used a 2 lb brisket and left out the cumin (I don't care for its flavor). I also trimmed the fat off before putting the spices on. My crock pot cooks fast and hot (unfortunately) so it only took mine 5 hours and it was falling apart and moist. I added some extra Worcestershire sauce right before serving. Absolutely delicious and will definitely make again!! Read More

this is an awesome easy recipe. I followed it to the exact recipe and it turned out nice and tender. I used Kraft Honey BBQ sauce. I only wished I would have cooked the whole 4 pound brisket. I am doing the other half later in the week. It is so full of flavor and is fork tender. Yummm!!!! Read More
