I have been an egghead for a little over a week now and am seeing a lot of things I don't really understand. Flat and Point on a brisket? You cut the point off before you finish the flat? I smoked my first Egg Brisket last Saturday and learned a lot, like more coal is a good thing. Fill it up into the smoke ring to get a good low and slow. I just saw dome temp vs. grill temp. Where do you go get all of this information?

    Give Travis and Cen-Tex a few...they should be over any second to put you through a quick bootcamp.

    Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ....
  • How did your brisket turn out?

    I'm surprised there isn't a master brisket tutorial thread that covers all the x's and o's. :-?

    @ OP-there are very few things that are new and unique that get posted here.  The very great majority comes from those who learn and pass along their experiences and observations.  There are many different ways to get a good result from the same basic cook.  WRT your brisket question, here's a link to a post running here today that should help.  Try the search function here or with "google and big green egg" in the subject and you should find way more info than you need.

    Welcome and enjoy the journey.

    I did one here:  http://eggheadforum.com/discussion/1138317

    When I first started. it's pretty self important and wordy but it has most of what you need. I don't do my fires that way anymore but for the most part, the bulk of it still stands. I think the links above to the real bloggers are better but it was my first shot at it.

  • I did a grip cook on my first brisket, it was helpful and fun! I tried to read up on tchnigurem what the cuts were, and why I wanted a packer over a flat. If you click on my name and look under discussion s you will see 2 thread there about briketsm read them they are very informative and funny too I have to say! How did it turn out?
  • Trust me Cen-tex and Lizzie are very good, 5 out of 5 :-c
