Sunday was moving day. To bribe as many people as possible to help (which is the only way to move- have too many people) I had offered beer, brisket, and mashed potatoes.

We picked up the brisket Saturday from Huntington Meats in the Farmer's Market (my favorite butcher, incidentally) and all they had in were giant, huge, enormous briskets. They cut one into an 8 person brisket, and we got the second 2 person brisket to freeze. I marinated the brisket overnight and put it in the crockpot first thing in the morning. For the first time, I was glad I got the large crockpot- it barely fit. But it was delicious. The brisket recipe I use is from my mother, who got it from a family friend, who made it on a waterskiing vacation in Arkansas. It's delicious.
