      I have been making this recipe since 2008...wouldn't change anything about it. It is a HUGE hit everytime! 5-6 pounds does not cut it for a gathering. I usually buy between 9-10 pounds and it's still all gone. Adjust the ingredients accordingly if you buy a larger brisket. Here in Texas we have a small company that makes fantastic BBQ sauce (which I think just makes this recipe even better) called C.W.'s Sweet Sauce. If you like sweet BBQ sauce you will love it!

      Very good! BTW. In making it again, I would not add the salt, since there is already Celery Salt in the recipe. Was much more salty than I like. Made in the Crock Pot--too easy!
