  • Pour jar of your favorite BBQ sauce in slow cooker. I like to add a little bit of water to the jar and shake to get every bit of bbq sauce left.

  • Place brisket fat side up in slow cooker (I trimmed some of the fat). Cover and cook on high for 6-7 hours or low for 8-10 hours. If you can flip the brisket about an hour before done cooking.
