    just one question, the recipe I used calls for only 1 beer and no water.. but not everything is fully submerged.. should I add more beer until at least the veggies are submerged or it should be fine as is?

    The lid creates moist heat by trapping steam. It doesn't have to be totally submerged. Plus the brisket will release some juices too.

    it doesn't need to be fully submerged to cook. and like cp says, the meat will release plenty of juices. you should be pleasantly surprised in a few hours. :cheer:
