I usually roast my brisket in the oven (covered & with carrots, onion, catsup) for about 1-1/2 hours, chill, remove hardened fat, thinly slice, cover with foil and roast another hour in the juices. Very tender and flavorful. But, I think I will try this recipe. Sounds great!

Love this recipe! Great for company over, or any time!
