Wonderful! I was skeptical, because I've always prepared brisket with my outdoor smoker. That's time-consuming and lots of work, however. This is way simple and the results are really great. I followed the recipe precisely and I wouldn't change a thing. I'll be making this over and over!

This was the first beef brisket recipe I had ever tried. I didn't have any chili sauce, so I used mandarin sauce that I wanted to use up and I didn't have any liquid smoke. I cooked it for 3 hours on high and 2.5 more on low. It was perfect. It sliced/shredded. I thickened some of the sauce with cornstarch. It was so much easier than making pulled pork which always has too much fat to get rid of and takes a lot of time to shred. Beef Brisket is a new favorite. Thanks for a great recipe!

Gotta love a good crock pot recipe and this is one of them. Made as directed except I used celery salt since I did not have any celery seed on hand.
