Brisket help/suggestions...?

Smoking a brisket this weekend. Wanted to try travis method - bought the shiner bock, brisket marinade, and the large pan. Bought a 15 pound brisket, which I'm now wondering if it was TOO big. I have a Large BGE, and the pan barely fits in there with it on top of the plate setter. I say it may be too big because I also need the marinade/beer/onion in there as well, and the thing may overflow and may not even serve a useful purpose for the brisket. I've realized my options are, and not limited to:

1) trim some of the brisket
2) smoke brisket for several hours, then put in pan with a warm marinade/onion,etc.
3) forget travis' method altogether.

Option 3 is an absolute last resort, as everything I've read about said method is nothing short of amazing. Let me know what you guys think, thanks for all the help.

I'll have a pic up soon.
