It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

First Travis Method Brisket

I asked one of the butchers at my local HEB if they had any Choice briskets in the cooler. The guy brought out a box of Meyer Choice briskets. My eyes lit up when he pulled out the smallest packer brisket I have ever seen - 4.5 lbs! I first thought it must have been a flat but, sure enough, it had a (point) deckle. Must not have been very large animal. So, I thought I would try to cook it in a manner that would keep it moist, etc. I was worried about it being too small...... Anyway, got it home and loaded my LBGE with Ozark Oak with some oak and pecan. Normally I use Wicked Good for my low and slow cooks but since this was a small brisket and I was going to set my Guru at 300*, it was not going to need all day to cook.

I put the brisket in fat side up. I think you get better bark with fat side down but.....very tasty and juicy brisket. The meat was done in 3 1/2 hours. Will do this again but with a larger brisket next time.
