Crockpot BBQ Brisket 4-6 servings
3-4lb. beef brisket, extra fat removed
1c. apple cider
1c. BBQ sauce ( I used Cattlemans)
I med. onion, chopped
4-5 cloves garlic, chopped
3 bay leaves
1 tsp. celery seed powder
1 tsp. Bacon salt
1 tsp. fresh ground pepper
trimming excess fat from brisket put in crockpot. (you want any big
pieces of fat removed, it gets greasy otherwise). Turn crockpot up to
Combine cider, BBQ sauce, celery seed powder, bacon, and pepper. Pour over meat in crockpot.
Top with chopped onions, garlic and bay leaves. Stir then
cover pot and cook on High for 4 hrs. Check to see if its getting
tender. If it is, lower heat to Low for 2-3 more hrs. It should be fork
tender and almost falling apart.
If there's too much juice in
the pot, when you lower the heat , take the lid and put in on sideways
to let some steam escape for about an hr. to thicken the juices.
Remove meat to serve, slice. Top with BBQ gravy in pot.
I served this with baked potatoes topped with sour cream and Peas cooked in butter with mushrooms and garlic.
