    Lots of beef recipes use beer instead of water for the
    liquid. A Guinness or similar can add a lot.

    Personally I like to add parsnip, it really produces a very
    unusual taste.

    white carrot thing]

    I cooked a brisket this last weekend. Saw a recipe for brisket on Emeril Live...
    they suggested a "point cut" brisket, and then dry rubbed it. I didn't particularly
    care for their dry rub, so I suggest you come up with your own.

    There was a homemade bbq sauce that was part of the recipe, but I found it overly
    sweet and garlicy. There again, I think you could use anything. The recipe called
    for an oven braise, but I just crock-potted it. I think I did high for about an
    hour and then lowered the temp. It was in about 9am and then I pulled it out at
    4pm to shred it, so 7 hours.

    I took the time to shred it and remove the big globs of fat. It turned out great,
    and leftovers yesterday (three days later) were even better.
