I really like this recipe, but would consider cutting down on the celery salt/lemon pepper, as I thought it was a bit salty. I've got a salt-free lemon pepper that I'll use next time. The house smelled so good all day. I did not use a trimmed brisket, but sliced off the fat before serving it. I debated using bacon slices on top, but MIL said the fat would provide the extra flavor, which it did. Thanks for posting - this one's a keeper !
