normally after gear in park, is preferred way as some times car does adjust the gear and there is gear pressure in the transmission. Putting in part the gear pressure is not there on your E b or parking brake

I've noticed a little lurch with the gearshift to park then applying the parking brake method. I go to neutral first then apply the brake, release the foot brake then shift to park. My .02 for what it's worth.

Same here. Especially on inclined surfaces when I park I do the same. Takes the pressure off the transmission when shifting to drive when you're ready to drive again.

To me, it's pretty obvious that you'd want the BRAKES holding the car, with the transmission as a back up, rather than the other way around.
This is what I've always heard, so I always put on the parking brake while still in Drive and then I shift to Park.

Put it in Park. Then engage the parking brake. Has always worked like a charm--the few times in life I've felt compelled to use it.
