First Travis Style Brisket

I just put on my first Travis Style Brisket, I have done a lot of Briskets and they turn out great but thought I would check this style out. I got a #11 Brisket at the Restaurant Depot but I could not find any Allegro Hot and Spicy in Atlanta so I used Stubbs Texas Steakhouse Marinade, sea salt and pepper and a bottle of Yuengling Beer, and chunks of Oak from a Jack Daniels Oak Barrel I got in Tennessee. I plan to chop up the Flat portion to use in my Chili for the Eggfest on Saturday and make Burnt Ends out of the Point. Also, this is my first cook with my replaced new Egg base.

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    5 hours into the cook the Egg temp had been stabilized at 285 the Flat was at 200 and tender and the point was at 175 so I separated them double foiled the Flat into the cooler with towels. The Point went back on the Egg.

    The Flat took 5 hours and the Point finished in 6-1/2 hours, FTC'd for 3 hours and tried a few slices. It was very good, nice little smoke ring it was moist and the flavor was fantastic. Thanks @travisstrick I will be doing this again.

    I'm glad it worked out for you. Looks good enough to eat.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    Thanks Travis, the Stubbs Steakhouse marinade flavor was very good too.
