If you have a removable stove top slow cooker insert, heat the insert over medium high heat. Add 3 tablespoons vegetable oil. When oil is hot, sear brisket on both sides until browned.
Remove to a plate and add sliced onions. Cook onions for about 3 minutes, stirring often. Add brisket back into the pot and nestle on top of onions.
Pour the bbq sauce over the brisket. Pour in cola. Use just enough to come up halfway on the brisket.
Slow cook 8 hours or until brisket is fork tender.
When the meat is done, remove to a large cutting board and slice against the grain, then shred.
Keep the shredded meat moist and flavorful by adding about a cup of the cooking liquid. This will also serve as some gravy for the mashed potatoes.
Serve over mashed potatoes or as a sandwich on a Kaiser bun or as sliders on slider buns.
