  • If not you can always blame it on Travis.

    It's like a weird episode of Pottery Barn Twilight Zone where Travis is responsible for everyone's fails.

    Very true, I was talking to my friends who are coming over for brisket and football tomorrow. They asked have I done brisket well before? Not yet, but if it doesn't work blame Travis. They were confused and asked who is Travis? I replied " all you need to know is appears he is the brisket god"

  • Remember that movie Kingpin with Bill Murray, Randy Quade, and Woody Harrelson? Woody's name was Munson and every time somebody got screwed or messed something up they called it a "Munson". Like "man, you got Munsoned on that deal". We could do that with Travis on Briskets. "Dude, you totally Travised that brisket, we better call for pizza"

    Correct. I would never do that to someone who couldn't cook. that would just be mean.

    My favorite part of cooking a brisket is trimming some of the bark off and eating it right away. I'm glad it turned out well for you.

    Me too. I always nibble all the nasty bits and odd pieces while trimming it up. best stuff ever.

    During the Travis method @ 300, still aprox. 1 1/2 hr ?

    should be. maybe on the 1 hr side since the liquid conducts heat better than air but you are in the ballpark.

    Plan on 1.5 hrs per pound. That looks out of this world. I just cooked a ckn, bacon, artichoke, basil pizza and have some 8in chocolate chip cookies on as we speak but suddenly, I want to cook some briskey!

    Thanks Travis! If it comes of too early, just FTC, yes? Should hold for three hours, I am assuming.

    Given the above info-you can FTC for 4-5 hours easliy if you make sure to use lots of towels to replace the air-gap in the cooler.  Just let 'er rip and work with the results-the BGE saves us from ourselves.

    You bet. Like lou said, 4-5 hrs of FTC is just fine.

    This is the "Travis Brisket". Just came off and is now FTC four a couple of hours. Just as the Brisket King said to do. I used DD Cow lick though and I used a Red Stripe lager. Mostly at 300, in the morning it seemed to drop to 275 and I didn't try to adjust it. It was on 15 hours and pulled at temps ranging throughout the brisket depend on the thickness from 195-203. It looks crazy moist and the probing check was super easy throughout the brisket. I don't want to jump the gun here, but I have high hopes for this cook. More later....

    That looks darn good. Since you are the cook, you are allowed to cut some of the flat off to try. I always do it.

    I'm going to try the "Travis Ckn Pizza" method and the "Travis Chocolate Chip Cookie" method as soon as possible.   8-}

    Do you TRex those cookies or do a reverse sear?

    It's a mix of hot tub and TRex. You must install a new gasket or it wont work though.

    I like my cookies blue.  I don't care about the raw eggs.
