Ever wondered if you could “smoke” a brisket in the slow cooker? Well, you can. Sort of. It’s not exactly smoked but it does have the smoky flavor thanks to some flavored wood chips and some liquid smoke. If you don’t own a smoker but want to make brisket…this recipe for smoked brisket in the slow cooker is the way to go! Briskets are a good cut of meat for the slow cooker since they need lots of time at a low temperature to cook. I used the Jones Creek Beef brisket and it turned out wonderful, as all of their products have for me.
