Best way to fill 2-3 inch gap between joist and top of garage door frame

Hello everyone,

I have a 2-3 inch gap above my garage door between where the top of the frame meets the wood joist that touches the exterior brick facade. I'm trying to figure out the best way to caulk/fill the gap. It looks like some type of caulk was used previously, but as you can see in the pics, it's now deteriorating and needs to be repaired. After I fix the gap, I'll paint the wood.

Any advice? I want an air-tight/water-tight seal. As cold air that gets in, it makes the kitchen and garage feel much colder. I'm in Philadelphia, PA so it gets cold.

Pics below.

Thanks in advance.
