This is a little sweet. Not sure that much brown sugar is needed. Try it with less to begin with.

This was a nice and easy way to prepare a brisket without heating up the house on a warm day. I used Recipe #52689 for the chili sauce and omitted the brown sugar called for in this recipe completely. It came out very tender and flavorful. I didn't make the gravy to go with it...too lazy or rushed. Just served with some veggies and buttered macaroni noodles. Was great. Will make again. Thanks!
