first time ever cooking brisket

Brisket, believe it or not, is really hard to find where I live, without special ordering and even then some crazy minimums are needed. I found one at a farmers market and decided I would try it out. I am nervous as I have read a lot of major failures. Also it is big, so we will be cooking for a small group.

It is a 6.5lb brisket, trimmed, vacuum packed right now, but probably going into the freezer until the weather warms up enough to have an outdoor feast. We have a gas grill, a small smoke box and or the oven to choose from.

I have looked through a few recipes, some are simple some are pretty complicated. Any advice/help/recipes would be appreciated.

My thoughts for serving are some nice baps, a homemade bbq sauce, maybe beans, corn, coleslaw etc.
