BBQ brisket and mashed potatoes

My husband just returned from his deployment and there was only one thing he wanted for dinner. BBQ brisket and mashed potatoes. I don't normally make entire meals centered around a massive cut of meat but what hubby wants hubby gets so we make it work. I do however cheat and instead of using a massive fatty cut of brisket I use a smaller leaner cut of london broil. He can't tell the difference :)

BBQ Brisket
1Tbsp Celery Salt
1 Tbsp Onion Salt
1 Tbsp Garlic Salt
1 Tbsp Salt
1/2 Tbsp pepper
2 Tbsp Liquid smoke
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
5-10lbs Brisket
2-3 cups of BBQ Sauce

*Add the brisket to the crockpot, add the liquid smoke and worcestershire sauce and sprinkle the top of the meat with the salts and pepper. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. 30min before serving add the BBQ sauce and cook till heated through.

My financial breakdown....
Salts $0.40
Pepper $0.02
Liquid smoke $0.20
Worcestershire sauce $0.20
London Broil $8.79
BBQ Sauce $3.00 (I bought homemade BBQ sauce from the local Amish market. It was a splurge but I like supporting our local community.)

Total for Brisket: $12.61

Total for Mashed potatoes and green beans:  $4.00

Total for meal: $16.61

Good thing we don't eat like this every night. There was enough to have for lunch today but still that is an expensive meal compared to what we are normally used to eating. It was worth it to see my husband smile though :)
