My friend has three loves.  
One: Kittens.  Two: Chocolate.  Three: BBQ Sauce

My task is to somehow create a hybrid of her loves … I’m still working on that one.  (Any suggestions?)  While I try to figure that out, she will just have to settle for some BBQ.  My parents came up with this quick, simple meal.  It cooks in a Crockpot all day, and leftovers are delicious.  It goes great with mashed potatoes; however, my dad always made twice-baked potatoes as a special treat.  We eat this all year round, but summers are especially wonderful for BBQ sauce.  So here it is: 
BBQ Brisket & Twice-Baked Potatoes:


Brisket (2 lbs)
Olive Oil
Fresh Ground Black Pepper
BBQ Sauce (1 bottle)
Consume (1 can)
Worcestershire Sauce (1/4 cup ishh)

Sour Cream
Fresh Ground Black Pepper
Garlic Powder

what TO DO

… in a skillet
heat olive oil
brown the brisket on all sides
(this should only take about 3 minutes)

… in a bowl
whisk together: BBQ sauce, consume, Worcestershire sauce, & black pepper
(if you like a thicker sauce, use less consume)
(If the sauce is thick now, that's okay, it will thin from the meat juices)

… in a Crockpot
place meat (fat side up) in the Crockpot
poke the meat with a fork
pour the BBQ mixture over the meat
 cook on high for 3-4 hours
(Or let it cook all day. The longer it cooks, the more tender the meat gets)

… in the oven
bake the potatoes (almost all the way)
remove from the oven
use a knife to cut an oval on top of the potato, remove the top skin 
scoop out the innards of the potato & place in a bowl
add a heaping scoop (or two) of sour cream for each potato
season with black pepper and garlic powder
mash (or whip)
spoon back into the potato shells
bake for another 10-15 mins.

This meal is wonderful with warm bread, baked beans, and/or corn on the cob
