How does apple cider and apple cider vinegar help brisket:
Apple cider vinegar is usually spritz onto brisket while it smokes. Spraying increases moisture on the surface, allowing for better smoke absorption, but also reducing maximum bark formation. This recipe is made in a dutch oven and is not smoked, therefore the apple cider and apple cider vinegar in our marinade is just for flavor.
Make it a meal:
I add potatoes, apples and carrots right into my dutch oven to cook together. See notes in recipe card.
How to store brisket after it's been cooked:
Store brisket in your refrigerator for up to five days in an air tight container.
