Modified Travis Method

I started with the Travis method.  It looked like it was just going to boil so I have placed a grid on top of the pan and am going straight smoke.  This is also my first attempt at posting a pic.

    When my pan boils to hot, I just keep adding the last few sips of my shiner to replace the evaporated liquid. You have to drink fast though.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

  • This is my first brisket so I'll probably screw it up.  The sauce is very good so I will eventually baste with it.

    Basting will soften/ruin your bark. I'd skip it.

  • Some weather came through and I had a weird drop in grid temp.  I opened up the damper and the temp seems to be crawling back up.  We are patiently waiting.
  • I pulled it at about 201.  The flat is good but a little drier than I would like.  The point is delicious....just about perfect.  Do you think I should have pulled it earlier?  I had the probe in the flat.
