      This was the best brisket in the world! Buy a big brisket cause you're gonna want leftovers I promise. Do yourself a favor; buy reynolds foil bags and use kc masterpiece regular flavor. After the 5 hours cooking, scrape off the fat layer and discard. Then pour the sauce on. After the last hour cooking. cool for the 20 min., then cool covered for 30 more min., then slice and pour more kc masterpiece sauce over and reheat in 350 oven just to heat. Perfect. Great sweet bbq sandwiches the next day.

      I made this brisket for a huge family gathering for Father's Day. I followed the recipe exactly and the result was rave reviews. I have tried many brisket cooking methods and this is the best. It is an easy recipe that has splendid results. It is now my default recipe for brisket.
