This is Aaron Brooks, I created this recipe.
While I agree that this recipe in not "Traditional" I did not make it to be "Traditional"
I actually created it, sitting at my desk at work while trying to think of different ingredient combinations that might go well with brisket.
I still have and use the Cookshack that I won for the recipe in 2001. As a matter of fact I am cooking a beef brisket in the smoker the "Traditional" way now.
I love to cook and have alawys had fun cooking!
I now own a catering company and still receive great reviews on my brisket when I serve it.
If anyone has any questions regarding the recipe feel free to ask.
