Brisket Travis Style Sauce

Thought I would start a new thread. How do you finish the sauce with the wet from the Travis method brisket?

    First taste it and see if you like it.  It's gonna be really smokey.  Then treat the same as drippings (gravy).  Or I guess you could add it to BBQ sauce.
    This is my signature line just so you're not confused.

  • and it will be crazy salty too. and 50% fat. you'll need to skim the fat and see if you like what's left. You can add it to your bbq sauce but once you do that, unlike regular sauce, you have a week before it goes bad (you have to treat it like the brisket itself. 5-7 days then out). 

    If you dont get all the fat, it will harden in the sauce when you refrigerate it....yuck.
