Been lurking here for a while soaking up all of the great wisdom. So, after a while, I built my table, bought an XLBGE and did my first cook Monday in secret. I cooked a whole chicken. It was horible! I found out by searching hear that my fire starter cube did not burn off so my chicken soaked up all of the flavor from the starter. No bueno! So, tried again with whole lump mesquite with a Weber fire starter cube and cooked chicken again and it was AWESOME!
So, I have decided to reach for the big brass ring and cook a brisket tonight for tomorrow. I have a 10.5 lb whole brisket and am following the Travis and Cent-Tex method of cooking. I'll post pics and results, no matter what.
Just want to say I have so enjoyed reading so many wonderful posts from so many people on this site. I look forward to finally being able to eat brisket without having to go to th eSalt Lick in Austin, TX (As I am in Southern California, the trip is expensive just to eat brisket, lol).
