1/8 cup red pepper flakes
4 28oz cans dieced tomatos
3 28 oz cans tomato sauce
sautee the vegetables in a little oil till done.
add ground beef to pot and brown ( stirring every now and then)
Once the meat is browned ,Drain w/ a collander.
Put the meat and veggies back into the pot and add the diced up brisket.
Add all the seasonings and mix well.
add the tomatos w/ juice and stir.
Add the tomato sauce and stir.
bring to a slow boil ,stirring occasionally.

According to the clan here. this was the best chilli i have ever whipped up.
The smoked brisket added the perfect ammount of smoke to the pot.
