    PaulaG's Note:

    This original recipe was printed in the insert cookbook that came with my crock pot many years ago. I adjusted it to suit our taste. This brisket is often requested for potlucks and during our football booster club days, it was prepared and sold at all home games. It can be served on buns with sliced onions and dill pickles or by itself. The cooking time reflects the marinade and cooling time.

      Very good. I brought this to the office pot luck and it was a hit! I was unable to find a brisket on short notice so I used a 4 pound rump roast sliced lengthwise. Other than that I followed all other directions using Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce. Will definitely make this again.

      The title says it all. This is without a doubt the best barbecue brisket I've ever had, and I'm not a huge fan of brisket until now. I made this with your barbecue sauce Memphis Barbecue Sauce which made it all the better. Thanks so much for posting. This will be made again and again.
