Brisket Travis Style Question

I am planning on making my first brisket-Travis style, this weekend. I have read the original post. Has anyone tweaked the recipe/method? What do you do with the pan of liquid afterwards?

    Yes.  I own a blue egg!  Call Atlanta if you don't believe me!

    The original method has been great for me on smaller briskets. If he has tweaked it, I too would love to know.

    Here's the link http://eggheadforum.com/discussion/1138233/brisket-how-i-do-it/p1 Only tweaks I have done is to use beef stock instead of Allegro as I can't find it here in Chicago. As for the liquid, I separate the fat and mix some of it in with bottled sauce for the sauce for the brisket. One more thing. His recipe says Packer but this method is outstanding if you are only cooking a flat.

    @BuckeyeBob,

    I use the Allegro Original instead of the hot and spicy version due the fact that my wife thinks mayonnaise is spicy. :<)  I would think the beef broth would work great. Your idea of defatting the liquid and mixing it with a BBQ sauce sounds very interesting. I too have use it for a flat or too and get great moist results.
