Need Brisket advice...

I have done a couple small briskets, but never a full brisket.  This thing is huge!  It's 11 pounds and I want to do it with Travis's method.  From end to end its 19" long.  Should I cut the flat and cook it separate on one of my other eggs?  I think I would have to drape this one over a v-rack to fit it my large.

Thanks in advance!

    Your grid is 18" on your large.  That brisket will fit.  At first, you might scwunch it a tad, but as it cooks, it will get shorter.

    But I don't think the pan is going to fit which is my problem...doing it Travis-style.   :)

    I draped one over the V rack 2 weeks ago, after about an hour and a half i took the rack out and it had shrunk up enough to fit

    Good call. I can start it out on the grid and move to the pan after shrinkage has occurred.   :D

    If the pan is the problem you need a different pan, right? What am I missing?

    Fold the ends of the pan upward?

    It's not going to fit in a smaller pan unless I cut it and I doubt I could fold the pan to make it fit.  I think I am going to put it on the grid directly for a while and then move it to a smaller pan (hopefully) after it shrinks up a bit and finish it out.

    That looks like a giant flat.
