2nd brisket attempt just went in the egg
I am sitting outside with my 14 year old daughter and we just put a 13 pound packer brisket on the egg! I had a plan to follow all the suggestions I have learned on this board but decided this afternoon to change directions. I bought the meat from a butcher in town whom I only recently met. He also does a lot of smoking at his shop on a BGE. He told me he smokes a brisket weekly and he gave me his method which I am going to try... What is the worst thing that could happen? He doesn't use a meat thermometer. He starts at 240 dome with a fair amount of smoke and then brings it down to 225 pretty quickly. After about 8-10 hours, he foils it and then he leaves it on the grill "the longer the better" at 225- foiled. I know it will kill the bark but I am going for delicious moist meat as my number one and two priorities. He said that some chefs believe it can't be done if it was on the grill for less than 19 hours. 19 hours from now will be 6 PM...perfect! He actually trimmed it to fit on my egg and he showed me a piece of fat that was on the flat that he recommended taking off (on the "bottom"- if the point is on the "top") that he took off and he seasoned it with his "home" made rub. He also gave me a 10% discount (from $6.50 a pound for choice- all natural from the Northwest)
