BBQ Sauce Recipe for Brisket

One of my buddies gave me a nice brisket, so I'm going to smoke it for Super Bowl dinner. Any recommendations for a nice spicy BBQ sauce? I usually use Eastern NC sauce with pork, but I can do Western and SC (Mustard) too. I'm looking for something different here. How about you Texans? What goes well with a nice brisket down there?
BBQ sauce on brisket? Ain't that like beans in chili?

I actually prefer beans in my chili but I have to admit that I prefer my brisket without sauce. As long as the rub is good and it isn't over cooked, there is no need for a sauce at service. But that is just one man's opinion.

Good luck on your quest.
