Hickory Smoked Brisket

READY IN: 10hrs 3mins
Recipe by mmm29

This simple but delicious recipe is amazing! I use a corned beef brisket (discarding the little package of spices that usually comes with it.) It is very good served with red new potatoes and red cabbage. The leftover beef is perfect for Reuben sandwiches. This is one of our family favorites.

We got this same recipe from the recipe booklet that came with one of our crockpots. We just love it! We use fresh brisket. After it's done, I shred it, toss it in the crockpot with barbecue sauce, and warm it up. Then I serve it on rolls, alone or with slices of cheese. Delicious! I'd misplaced the recipe, so we haven't had it in a long time. Thanks for posting, mmm29--I'm happy to be able to make this again!
