Not digging the crutch.

I usually just throw my brisket on the egg shut the lid and pull it when it's done.  This weekend I had a limited time schedule so I decided to crutch at about 180º.  To my taste this makes the meat kind of taste braised (almost boiled).  Anyone else prefer the taste without the crutch?

    Yep, I don't foil anything. I am planning to try a Travis brisket though...

    Which brisket?  The way he never does anymore...IE "How I do it" brisket.

    OP.  I have never foiled brisket.  I have wrapped in paper once and it wasn't my fav either.  
    Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ....

    Yeah, 'how I do it's. Is that passe? Is there a new game in town?

    Gonna do it anyway, it looks great...
