This recipe was given to me by my mother in law. It is by far the best brisket/sauce that I have ever tried!

I had company coming and I hadn't had a brisket in ages so I decided on this one, and man, am I glad I did! The brisket was cooked to perfection, and the sauce was in all honesty the best I have had! I plan to use it on some baby backs next!
