Lookin' for trouble

I never would have thought this would work until I went to my buddy's house an tried his brisket.  It absolutely destroyed any other brisket I've ever tasted.  So anywho, I'm thinking of giving this method a whirl.  Thoughts?

    OK, we're underway.  Burnt the crap out the brisket and now it's sitting in the pan.  Kind of nervous . . .

    It's basically a Travis method sans adding braising liquid.  The liquid will form on it's own and will be from the brisket.  Initial sear.  Then deglaze cooking pan for a sauce.  Should be fine, let us know how it turns out.

    Everything turned out well.  Not quite as good as my buddy but the flat was more tender and juicy than what I usually get (and this was a grass-fed brisket from Paidom).

    Nice.  Refine, repeat, report and we'll all learn something.

    with a sear and a crutch, a grill, and a smoker. Lots of moving parts on this one.

    I used the egg to sear the meat.  It's complicated to be sure.  I wouldn't have bothered with it if I hadn't been so impressed with the product.  I want to try it with a conventionally raised brisket.
