I'm sure you can't part with the recipe, but I'd love to make that in our slow cooker.  What a great looking soup.   Wish you could  move your restaurant down South.

Happy to share the recipe, can't give small quantity as we always do 30 ot. batches
Canned, yes canned, beef broth
Beef Base
Smoked Brisket, most all fat removed, cubed
Pepper
Vegies you like, no tomato however, cuts the beef flavor
potato 
carrot
green bean
peas
Simmer till potato is done, don't boil, dries out the meat
That is it, couldn't be simpler! To not share a recipe shows, to me at least, a misbegotten insecurity, as people can do your recipe a 1000 times and will swear they can't quite match up to your version.

Thank you very much, maybe I can make it work in a slow cooker if it's on low.  Looks like you begin with fully cooked, smoked brisket, cube it, and go from there.  You're absolutely right about tomatoes cutting the beef flavor in soups or stews.  Also, about recipes in general.  You can hand the same recipe to 5 different people and you'll get back 5 different dishes.  Amazing, isn't it.

Slow cooker would be good, you do need a fully smoked brisket, defatted, a little is okay, but you don't want greasy broth. cube it to desired size. LOL about the 5, so true!

 MellowRoast - Unless you have a small piece of brisket and only use a couple of vegetables, I don't think a crockpot is large enough to cook everything in.
 
I use a crockpot as a starter for cooking 1/2 brisket from Sam's and whatever amount of water it will hold, which is about half of what the soup needs.  Once it's cooked - separate the beef from the strained broth into separate containers and refrigerator overnight.
 
The next day defat the strained broth, add extra broth (I use beef Redibase) into a large stockpot.
 
In stages, (what cooks fastest, gets added last).  You can also double what you like best, omit those you don't.  I use fresh vegetables except for the corn, barley, and tomatoes: 
 
potatoes
carrots
celery
1lb. can of whole tomatoes, chopped with juice (unlike chewingthefat, I don't find that small amount detracts from the flavor)
small box of frozen corn kernels
fresh green beans
barley
cabbage
cauliflower florets
okra - have used on occasion when I had it
 
I'm not home to list the seasoning for cooking the brisket,  but can post it later.

Great sounding recipe Belle! is right!  Like you suggested it does need some celery.  In moderation though. Just enough to barley taste it! That's the secret to using Celery in recipes. Done right most folks would not even know it's in there. Kinda like on a Chicago Style Hot Dog.
 
But... some big chunks, pinkie nail size, might be good in this ??? Hey, it's a brisket veggie soup.

Now this soup is more to my liking Mr Chewin'.
I think it is more better than the bacon and cream mius the clams.
If you need celery there is plenty in Papa Joes Post--
and on Halloween  "The Celery Stalks at Midnight".  woahoooooo

Oh, by the way, CTF---you can charge an extra buck if you serve
horseradish or horseradish sauce on the side.  
Raised in a Jewish neighborhood where horseradish was always served with brisket.  Great for sinus congestion also.

Those early French in NOLA, were very thrifty, they'd cook boiled brisket (boulli)  for dinner, then use the leftover meat, broth, and vegetables for soup.
 
From Richard and Rima Colins' The New Orleans Cookbook:
 
Horseradish Sauce
 
6 TBS. horseradish
1 TBS. Creole mustard (brown mustard might work if you don't have Creole)
3 TBS. white wine vinegar
1/4 tsp. ground white pepper
1/8 tsp. cayenne
1/8 tsp. sugar
1/2 c. heavy cream
 
Combine all of the ingredients except for the heavy cream, mix thoroughly, and let stand for 15 minutes, then add the cream.  Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour.
 
Seasoning for cooking Brisket (recipe call for 2 qts. of water in a stockpot - if you use a crockpot you might be using less water, so you may want to halve some of this.)
 
 
(Some of this is me, and some of thisis from the Collins')
2 Beefsteak tomatoes cut in quarters
2 medium onions cut in quarters
6 carrots cut in half, and again crosswise
4 green onions, cut in 3-4" pieces
4 stalks of celery cut up roughly
8-10 stems of parsley
2 TBS. salt
1/1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
2 bay leaves
1 tsp. dried thyme
6 whole cloves
6 whole allspice
1/4 tsp. cayenne
1/4 tsp. mace

Something that would work for this soup... the kids got something from one of my neighbors for Halloween...SKARROTS! It was little bags of baby carrots. This was not a big hit w/ tha kids. I ended up w/ 5 bags.
 
Shoot Ancient One, I coulda done those Celery Stalks... At Midnight! :~(

Oh, I love Horseradish on Prime Rib but I think on good Smoked Brisket might be against the law where I live?

Papa Joe------Brooklyn and Far Rockaway are far, far away from Texas
and bar-b-q and smoked brisket.  A nice piece boiled brisket needed something, anything, for taste.  Gold's Horseradish not only gave some zing to dinner it killed the taste of everything else.  And that was a good thing !!!!

PapaJoe, I looked it up, your absolutely right, Brisket abuse carries a minimum 5 year stretch in Texas, no early parole. Most folks in State prison down there did indeed get charged with B A, as it's known down there, for putting Horseradish sauce on brisket, the vast majority were visiting from Florida!

LoL Chewer! BA is a good thing for folks visiting Texas to know about.
 
Ancient one, boiling a brisket ???... get a rope!!! If forced to eat such a thing I would probably be happy to have some Horseradish. :~)
 
After looking at this BBV soup several times I would like to take back an earlier statement concerning celery. My conclusion is that this soup needs no additions, or changes, of any kind.

One more sauce recipe for that boiled brisket,
 
Ketchup Horseradish Sauce
 
1/2 cup horseradish
1/2 cup Creole mustard
1 cup ketchup 
Mix together and chill before serving
 
Now Ancient one, and Joe, you got me to wondering, can you even buy Creole mustard in your neck of the woods?  it's a grainy brown mustard, but may even have a little horseradish in it as well.

I was wondering the same thing. Perhaps someone considers brisket too political.
