Great place and BYOB too!
^ They may do the gas fired steam smokers for brisket becasue of the masses ?
However in the the book, pages 188-200 there is a lot on brisket, brisket 101 including a lot of detailed informion and pictures. Seaoning. cutting , etc..When it comes to cooking the brisket they show what looks like a offset (can's see the whole thing), starting out searing at 225 F and then working down to 195 and finishing off ar 185 F cooking a total of roughly 75 minutes per pound through the process = 17 1/2 hours for 14 lb brisket.
Your lucky to live where you do for access to great Texas BBQ. I live in Western Kentucky and we have some very good BBQ joints (but no sausage) and no place like this that feeds that many people on a weekend.
Anytime I can get a nice hardback cookbook from a famous place like this with this much info and unique recipes (A-Z including but other than just BBQ) for under $50, it's a no brainer for me.
