Wonderful recipe - ran out of Heinz sauce for my favorite brisket recipe. Prepared sauce as directed. Delicious. I added extra 1/2 tsp chili powder and 1/8 pepper, and oh boy what a kick! Had to add more tomato paste and corn syrup. Be careful with proportions of spices and seasoning. I advise: follow recipe as written but start with less chili powder and cayenne especially if you use high quality, strong chili powder like I do. Adjust for your family's taste. Best brisket ever.
Thanks so much for working out this recipe! I have tried a bunch but this is my last stop. It is that good!
The sauce was good, but I found it to be a lot sweeter than the chili sauce you buy in a bottle. Next time I will probably use half as much syrup, or maybe switch to sugar and just use 1/4 cup. It was still yummy even if sweeter than usual.
Great Scotts! I replaced the nasty evil corn syrup with a real dark brown sugar(smokey taste & caramel color), 1/4 cup of apple vinegar with Tabasco( taste & natural preservative), added ketchup to get the Heinz flavor, & chili powder for chili. I do add whiskey to my chili or beer and that really kicks up the flavor too. I will be using celery salt, dill weed,smoked cumin, chipotle powder, fresh minced garlic, fresh minced onion, and maybe off brand sriracha.
