Slow Cooker BBQ Brisket Sandwiches

These slow cooker bbq brisket sandwiches are a new favorite of mine. I love a good brisket and this one is amazing. Plus, you only need a few simple ingredients to make the brisket.

Slow cooking is always key to a good brisket. All you need to cook ths is a 2 1/2 pound brisket along with some onion, apple cider vinegar, and bbq sauce. I happen to be a fan of Sweet Baby Ray’s sauce. That ia what I used.

The sandwich itself is what is really what makes this brisket shine. It all begins with a toasted bun. You have that texture contrast with the soft part of the bun and the inside cripsy grilled part. Next, once you got slices of that brisket on the bun, you top it with additional bbq sauce, sliced dilled pickles, and coleslaw. This dill pickle adds a nice crunch and tartness. The coleslaw also adds crunch plus sweet aand creamy sweeetness.
