This Slow Cooker Smoked Brisket is so easy and the perfect dinner for when it is too hot to fire up the oven or cook outside!
I live in the great state of Texas. Texas, the Lone Star State, is well known for many things. Bluebonnets. Cowboys. Armadillos and The Alamo.
The Dallas Cowboys, Texas Rangers and San Antonio Spurs.
For Dr. Pepper, NASA, live music and college football.
Texas is also well known for its food.
Texas food… from Tex-Mex to barbecue. To a rich cuisine full of Cajun and creole influence, to fried chicken (and other fried foods) and chili.
And while other states may have their own version of these popular foods, Texas holds their own and takes pride in THEIR food, especially barbecue.
Yes, Texans and their barbecue. Don’t mess with that.
But today I am breaking all sorts of Texas barbecue rules laws, and bringing you a recipe made in the slow cooker/crock-pot.
Yes, all you barbecue traditionalist turn your head away and don’t hate that I am creating some amazing barbecue using a few short cuts.
You see I don’t have any special equipment and I certainly don’t have all day to sit and babysit some meat. But I do have a slow cooker (and I bet most of you do too!) which allows me to slow cook a brisket to tender perfection, all while I am away from home living life.
