We have a local restaurant 'Gates and Sons' and I really like their sauce.

However with smoked brisket, I like it without any sauce.

Let me preface this by saying I don't think brisket needs much sauce. I want the beef flavor to come through. That being said... in competitions we use Cattleman's Original cut about 50/50 with beef broth. Works for us!!

i know what your saying. i prefer to let the rub and smoke do the flavoring.
but some people ask for sauce. i was just trying to get an idea of what other people use.

i been thinking of just using my rub with beef broth and tomato sauce but haven't tryed it yet wil let you know how it goes.

Just like cigars, there are different flavors for everyone.

Commercially, I think Sweet Baby Rays seems to have the biggest following that I hear of. Personally, I've tried sauces from Cowtown and Three Little Pigs make a few sauces I like that you don't just seen on every grocery shelf in town.

go to http://www.penzeys.com and experiment. Seriously.

If you really want a sauce, I recommend this one that I use for pulled pork. I wouldn't cook with it, just use it as a sauce after cooking.

1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup light (mild) molasses
2 tbsp sweet paprika
2 tbsp spicy brown mustard
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup water
1/2 tsp liquid smoke flavoring (optional)

Oh yeah, get some rhubarb, dice and put in a cheesecloth bag. That'll make it really special. Possibly add raspberry puree to the sauce as well.

Try looking around on the amazing ribs site. I've done two briskets using his tips and the next one I do I want to try Walter Jetton's sauce, given on this page.

Put a pan under your brisket to catch the drippings.

When done smoking, pour off all the drippings into a container, defat (leave about 1/4 cup fat)

Deglaze the drippings pan with some red wine vinegar, how much depends on the size of your drip pan, so for a benchmark, for a 9x13 pan I would use about 1/3 cup vinegar.

Scrape all the bits up while deglazing, then add (again based on the 9x13 pan size, scale it up or down as needed)

Your pan drippings
1/2 C white wine, or a medium body beer.
1/3 C ketsup
1/4 C Honey
1/3 C Packed brown sugar
2 Tb of your rub
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground clove (or allspice as a substitute)
1-? tsp ground cayenne (spice to taste, balance the sweet, tart from the other ingredients)
1 medium onion, chopped fine
2 large cloves garlic, mashed
Salt and FRESH ground black pepper to taste

Cook in a large saucepot over medium/medium low heat until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon (about 1 hour) this sauce will thicken more on cooling so don't get it too tight.

This is similar to what I use with my ribs (ribs get dry rub, then braised in a stock in oven. Juice from brazing becomes base for sauce)

This is very similar to the sauce I use for brisket. I'm at work so I don't have the recipe in front on me, but it's definitely almost identical.

after some thought and some of the comments of this thread i have decided not to use/ offer any sauce. the brisket will stand on it's own. thank you for your helpful advice and comments.
