Recipe by Sandy Clark Gerhardt
"This is a wonderful and very easy recipe to throw in the slow cooker on those really busy days. It can be increased for a large group or downsized for 2 people. It reminds me of summers in Texas."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I thought this was alright. It was definitely no match for real smoked brisket and the depth of flavor. I bought the brisket at a whole sale club, so I just doubled the recipe as it fit in my crock pot. Make sure to have large containers of paprika, pepper, or other flavorings as it uses quite a lot. I am pretty certain it will all be eaten, but think I will go back to real smoked meat.
Ruined my $23.00 Brisket. MUCH TOO SALTY. I followed the recipe exactly as it was written. I mixed together all the spices (which seemed to be way too much), rubbed it on my brisket and placed it in a large ziplock back in the refrigerator over night. In the morning I mixed together the remaining ingredients into the slow cooker, placed the brisket in and covered the top with onion rings (fresh cut). I set the cooker for 6 hours on low and when I came home from work I removed it from the cooker and sliced a few pieces. Just to make sure it was ready for dinner I taste tested 2 bites. OMG - it was WAY TO SALTY. We tried to eat it for dinner with mashed potatoes and flakey biscuits but still couldn't make it all the way through. I tossed the rest of the meat down the garbage disposal. Cut the spices at least in half or plan on a SUPER SALTY meal!
Very good, very easy. I've always wrapped my brisket in foil to make it in the crockpot. This recipe is great. I cooked mine o n low for nearly 8 hrs. The family really liked it. We did try to use the sauce from the drippings but too fatty to be good. Perhaps a good chill first? Will definitely do this again.
I REALLY LIKE THE RUB; I LET IT MARINADE FOR OVERNIGHT AND COOK THE BRISKET IN MY WEBER ON INDERECT HEAT FOR 5 HOURS
Extremely easy recipe. It was very good. I used a 2.85 Lb brisket, but there was enough rub in the origial recipe to cover it. I upped the onion to a whole one, because we like cooked onion. And i put it under the brisket, instead of on top. However, I don't think I'm a cumin person. So next time, I'll either reduce, or remove it from the rub.
The rub is quite versatile! I added a bit more liquid smoke to the sauce and used Sweet Baby Ray's Original. Cooked on HIGH for 5 hours (1-1/2 lb. brisket) till fork-tender. To the juices I whisked in 1/2 cup ketchup and 1/2 cup apple butter and reduced by half over medium heat on the stovetop. Delicious!
Didn't care for this--no match for the grill slow cooked method. I did not add any water-the slow cooker method is watery enough. It was too salty...and the sauce was too watery for us. I won't use this again.
This came out delicious! I used a 2 lb brisket and left out the cumin (I don't care for its flavor). I also trimmed the fat off before putting the spices on. My crock pot cooks fast and hot (unfortunately) so it only took mine 5 hours and it was falling apart and moist. I added some extra Worcestershire sauce right before serving. Absolutely delicious and will definitely make again!!
