The most important thing to remember when making cholent is that you can't mess up, so have fun! The recipe is adapted for use with a 6qt crockpot. More important then any recipe is to use what you have already in the fridge. Leftover pepper steak, chili, hash-browns, random marinades....the more the merry. If you are missing any of the ingredients listed below, punt with what you have. Also, nobody likes cleaning up a crockpot after it's 24 hours of diligent work for you. Large crockpot bags or turkey bags are safe, clean and a G'd-send.

Preparation

Preparation

1 Place your onions, quatered, marrow bones and your brisket on a roasting pan and put under a broiler until both sides have good color, then place in crockpot

2 Cut your potatoes into managable peices, ussualy 6-8 per potato and add to pot as well

3 Add Beans, remaining meats(whole not cut up), spices, ketchup, teriyaki, and BBQ sauce into the pot

4 Pour as evenly as possible your washed pearled barley over everything else

5 Add can of Dr Pepper.....trust me on this one!

6 Place the 3 slices of kishke in the center over your pile of barley

7 Fill to the brim with water & cover with lid.

8 For Automated Crockpots, set mode on High 6hrs then leave overnight....DON''T TOUCH!!!

9 For the oldschool Crockpots, set mode to high for at least 4 hours if possible and then low overnight

10 Before serving, take the crockpot container out and with either tongs or 2 large serving forks mix the entire pot well, breaking up the large slabs of meat in the process.  I like to let everything sit for 10 minutes or so to set and cool down a bit.
