It's basically a controlled experiment to familiarize one with the feel, the tenderness, etc. of a brisket, specifically they flat. The one I did was by no means the greatest thing I ever ate (being addicted to smoked food and all), but it didn't taste like chit.
I think Donnie's point is basically cook it that way, see how it feels, and go for that feeling in the pit. I may not have done it right, because I preferred the texture of the ones I was doing in the smoker - at least the ones I didn't fark up.
