Top Review by Bellablue

We did not enjoy this brisket at all. It was way too spicy and way too sweet at the same time. The outside of the brisket was so charred it was inedible. I kept my grill at 350 degrees. Perhaps that was the problem regarding the charring. If anyone else wishes to try this recipe, I would recommend the grill stay at 300 degrees for sure. Sorry for the negative review but, our family did not enjoy the taste of this at all.
