We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Select Packer Brisket tips?

I found a few packers at Wally World last week and got the biggest one, just over 10lbs. I have always looked for choice briskets in the past, and have had good luck, but this was like $2.59/lb, so I figured I'd give it a shot.

Any tips on getting this to come out tender and moist? It's pretty flexible.....I can bend it in half in the cyrovac. It's from Excel packing.

I want good bark.....so no foil or braising if possible. I plan on smoking it at 230° grate temp. Would a bit higher help?

Thanks!
