"Make this brisket on a day when you have a bit of time, slow cooking at a low oven temperature for 6 hours is the only way to go for this recipe. Plan ahead the meat must be refrigerated for 8 hours before cooking. Kittencal's Crispy Potato and Green Onion Pancakes (Latkes) and Kittencal's Potato Kugel both go wonderful with this brisket...this is delicious!"

"First Rate! I followed the recipe as written, but made one extra. After I removed the meat from the pan and let it rest, I drained the drippings. Of course the liquid contained a mixture of meat juice and barbecue sauce. I let it cool down and removed the fat. It made and excellent sauce. I froze the extra, and next time I need barbacue sauce I will thaw it out. Thanks for a great recipe."
"Since members of my family were arguing over who got the left-overs, I would say this recipe was a resounding success. I had a 7.5 lb brisket, but I didn't change the measurements on the other ingredients, and it worked out great. I cooked it 1 hour per pound, which meant 7.5 hours, following the instructions exactly. This is SUPER easy to do and tasted heavenly. The next time-and there WILL be a next time-I think will put the brisket into a cooking bag, so I can turn it over a couple of times while it marinates. Yummy, now I will have to invent reasons for my husband NOT to barbeque the brisket! :)"
"This was my first time cooking a brisket and the recipe was a huge hit with my family. I had a 3 lb brisket, adjusted the ingredients to about half, and cooked it for 4 hours. My family, especially my daughters, raved about the recipe. When I first tasted the brisket, I thought it had way too much liquid smoke flavor. I'm sure this is my fault though and not the recipe. Since I was only using half the bottle of liquid smoke, I didn't measure it. I tried to pour about half of it in the dish. Next time I will definitely measure the amount needed though. By the next day, the flavor of the meat had mellowed and the brisket was absolutely delicious as leftovers. Unfortunately I only took two very small pieces for my lunch and I was wishing I had brought alot more! The meat was nice and tender from the slow cooking. Kittencal's Crispy Potato and Green Onion Pancakes Recipe #186700 was a perfect side dish to accompany the brisket."
