Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

brisket progress

Couple days ago, I mentioned to my Cypress TX buddy, Chubby, that I'm smoking a brisket this weekend.  When I told him the rub - equal parts of coarse black pepper, minced garlic and kosher salt, he said: "Oh goin' hill country old school".  The Chubster knows food and the Central Texas Germans know brisket, so made for a sound plan.........Two presmoke additions were a little spritz of Worcestershire prior to the rub and injected with Better Than Bouillon beef broth.....

Checked on it this morning, approximately 9 hour mark.  Nice bark developing and internal temp is 150ish.  The brisket topside is starting to give up some juices, so the plateau is beginning.  I'm itching to have this baby for an early afternoon lunch with a heaping pile of slaw or German tater salad.......


Smoking in the XL up in the dome.

  • I'm doing pulled pork  but now wondering if I should have tried a brisket.  There is always next weekend.  Enjoy.  It looks great.
