Crock Pot BBQ Beef Brisket

I love a good barbecue. The kind where everyone is gathered around a grill with all sorts of yummy food, as well as anything barbecue flavored. And it’s not always easy to find, depending on where you live. We are able to find it here Santa Fe, but with this BBQ Beef Brisket you now have a really easy recipe no matter where you are.

I also appreciate any meal that can be make a in a crock pot.

The combination of the two makes me very happy with this BBQ Beef Brisket.

The fact that this BBQ Beef Brisket makes so much is one of the best parts about it. There is so much you can do with this amazing meat!  One of our favorite ways is this easy and amazingly delicious Beef Brisket Nachos.  It’s a must make for lunch, dinner or appetizer and a great way to use up your leftover BBQ Beef Brisket!  Yum Yum!

But, for the most part we did simple sandwiches that were absolutely delicious because of all the flavor involved.
