    This is just a " Out Of This World Recipe"!!!!! I agree with Chill, EVERYONE needs to try this recipe! I made this for Superbowl Sunday and had my in-laws over and they said that was the best they ever had! We all loved it! I doubled the recipe since my brisket was a tad over 8lbs, and followed your recipe to a T. I loved the barbecue sauce so much I think I will be making that barbecue sauce to put on other stuff as well!! Yummmy!!! Thanks so so much Keen5

    Keen5! Thank you for your suggestion that I make this for my church pot luck! This is a fantastic recipe. I made it as stated in the recipe but had a 7 lb brisket so I doubled the sauce. Same time in the oven though. There wasn't a slice (or shred) of meat left. I barely got to taste it myself. EVERYONE, you need to try this recipe!!! Thanks again Keen5.

    This is a KNOCK YOUR SOCKS OFF recipe. The flavor is outstanding and the barbecue sauce hits the spot.The only change I made was to make this in my crockpot. I put 1/4 cup of water in the bottom, place the brisket in with fat trimmed off and added the rub. Cooked it on low for 10 hours. The brisket just fall apart. After shedding it, my family decided next time they just want to eat it without the buns. LOL I couldn't keep them away from the meat as I was shredding it. LOL
