For those who would like to know how this recipe is without any substitutions, it's d-e-l-c-i-o-u-s!
It has a flavor of liquid smoke but it's not deathly overpowering. For my sons 1st b-day we had a big party at the park. I cooked 5 whole market trimmed briskets in various sizes 4lbs all the way to 8lbs. I add the onion soup to 1/3 cup water and pour over prior to sealing bag. For an 8lbr I double dry soup with same amount water and add
1 1/2 bottles of COLGIN brand 4oz natural hickory liquid smoke. We got rave reviews from family and friends...none was left to bring home. I will try other brisket recipes from this site(I will try all once), but this "Oh So Tender Brisket" is definitely a keeper in our home. If anyone is worried about this becoming leather like, don't. Just add the additional water and check 2-3 hours prior to removing from over. Never leave anything cooking this long without checking if it's your first attempt! If it is becoming dry add a bit more water to bag. I also use a large to turkey size cooking bag to give me pleanty of room to work with. Honestly, I have never had to add water while cooking in 4 years of making this recipe.
