This is an absolutely fabulous brisket recipe I got from a cooking site on Prodigy many years ago. The resulting sauce has a wonderful barbeque-like flavor, and it's my personal favorite brisket recipe. I have prepared this not only as directed, but in the hotter months, when I haven't wanted to keep the oven on for hours, I've baked it in an electric covered frying pan right on my counter. The results are a bit different; the sauce does come out a lot thicker and darker. But it is still great, and a wonderful way to get a long-cooking comfort food meal when you don't want to heat up the kitchen, or just don't have an oven available. Great for those dorm room meals! I used a 350 setting for the same 2 1/2 hours. Just watch carefully so it doesn't burn, reduce the heat if necessary, and stir the sauce a bit more than you would if using the oven.
