Crockpot BBQ Brisket

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

After trimming excess fat from brisket put in crockpot. (you want any big pieces of fat removed, it gets greasy otherwise). Turn crockpot up to High.

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.
