So no doubt it's not a popular texan meat but the care and attention to detail now given to it is far from a historical tradition.

I left Lubbock in 2003 btw
I lived there '88-'97 and every joint I went to had brisket and sausage for sure. Ribs, maybe. Chicken, often. Smoked turkey was popular. But the butcher block seemed to always have a brisket out being sliced for plates. But, maybe brisket wasn't popular and I just ran with the crowd that liked it!! Never had crockpot brisket in Texas...around my bunch you'd probably have gotten lynched!
