An easy way to make a nice brisket. The beans in this recipe are wonderful - sometimes I just make a big pot of the beans alone. Even though I love the convenience of my crock pot, I feel that cooking in the crock pot generally overcooks any meat. However, in this case, with brisket, it is pretty darn good, especially with the delicious beans on the side! I sometimes find that the liquid gets a little low, when it is cooking. If this occurs, you can do any of the following, as needed: double the sauce recipe to add later, add some bottled barbecue sauce, or add a can of beer. Enjoy!
