    ...and that folks, was how the Travis method was born.  Travis, for once in his life, followed directions and braised.

    Jumped on the bandwagon with a 6 pounder from Costco. Cut it in half so we could have one spicy with Sirachai sauce and one not. Right now we're double-decking it on an AR indirect at 285F with some mesquite chunks. Used Coors Light, didn't want to waste good beer!

    One question from a brisket noob: At 205F IT do you pull the brisket? I think you slice. But I pull chucks at that temp, the pepper/beef/stout recipe works similar. Deep inside you get this "Who pulls a brisket ???".

    Slice it! Pencil size slices against the grain.

    If you do fat side down in the aluminum pan, couldn't you just take all the fat off of the bottom of the brisket?
    ·
  • nolaeggheadnolaegghead Posts: 14,962
    You want some fat, especially on the flat where the meat doesn't have much marbling.  But you could if you wanted to.

    Yeah, I figured if it was in the braising liquid...whats the point of having all that fat on it.  I could be wrong, but i wouldnt think much of it would render since its just chillin' in the liquid.

    It may actually render better since liquid is a much more efficient transferrer of heat than air.

  • mountaindewbassmountaindewbass Posts: 1,752
    I guess there wouldnt be any bark on the bottom..so i could always cut off any fat that didnt render after it was done cooking!

    Im doing Travey's method modified..using different liquid(Dr. Pepper, and marinade mix)

  • mountaindewbassmountaindewbass Posts: 1,752
    Help. I'm trying to buy the stuff for Travis brisket method. As far as marinades go they only have a kc masterpiece steakhouse marinade or a Moores hickory marinade. Which would you use?

  • SpringramSpringram Posts: 423
    I do not care for stuff on my briskets. Just me. I would think the Masterpiece would be pretty swett as most sweet of there stuff is. The Moores, I am not familiar with. You can always use plain 'ol beef broth ......

    Sorry,

    I meant to say "sweet stuff"  My usual martinis are talking, I think.

    I think the Travis Method is great, BTW>

    I ended up finding some info on another forum. It sounds like the moores is pretty good. It'll be diluted in dr. Pepper and onions per Travis method

    Moore's is basically the same as Dale's if your familiar with it.

    I like Dales a lot but it does have ALOT of salt.

    Dales is basically concentrated soy sauce.  Adds MSG umami flavor and salt.

    Thankfully Moores doesn't have MSG. It's salty though..would it be better to just have dr. Pepper and an onion in the pan? I was unable to find Allegra where I'm at
