Stir together seasonings and rub all over brisket. Pour sauce over brisket, cover and cook on low for 10 hours.
Pour liquid from the slow cooker into a large sauce pan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir cornstarch into cold water until dissolved, then pour into sauce pan. Reduce heat to medium-low and stir until sauce is thickened. Remove from heat.
