  1. Just started following your blog. Thank you! Your recipes look wonderful! What size bottle of ketchup do you use in this brisket recipe?


    1. Hi Terri. Great question, I will add to the recipe. I use a 32 oz bottle of Ketchup, the great thing about this recipe is that it’s pretty “fool proof” if you add too much or too little ketchup it will still be great. But, make sure to use the Heinz Chili Sauce. Just need to be sure brisket is tender and has enough liquid in pan when baking. Enjoy!!
