I think one of my favorite inventions is the crock pot. What better than to do a minimal amount of work, place it in a crock pot and let it do all the cooking. This brisket was tasty with a hint of chili powder on the top and tenderness and a slight flavor of Dr Pepper on the bottom.
Dr Pepper Brisket
1 brisket, butcher trimmed (mine was 2 pounds)
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
1 tbsp chili powder
1 1/2 cups Dr Pepper
In a small bowl, combine the dark brown sugar and spices. Rub on both sides of the brisket. Place in the crock pot and pour in the Dr Pepper along the side. Cook on medium high for 1 hour and then turn down to medium for 7 hours.
