Not quite sure if this is a marinade or a brine. Used to be soaking your brisket a couple days in a Dr. Pepper concoction was pretty popular. Of course, with a prohibition on pre-seasoning meat and inspection rules, this couldn't be done for competition. Here's a version:

Given that there's the acidity of the Dr. Pepper, its more a marinade. Given the substantial salt in the recipe, I'd think of it as a brine. I lean towards brine. Doesn't use a curing agent like pink salt, so you don't get a pink color like corned beef. Haven't done one in several years. Came out good, best results came when substituting Vernor's Ginger Ale for the Dr. Pepper. Kind of a Motor City twist to it. Hope this helps
