Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It’s almost football season, so we’re perfecting our favorite tailgating and homegating recipes! Whether you like hamburgers, wings, brats, ribs or something cooked with beer, we have everything you’ll need for the perfect tailgate party. We always like inviting friends to join our tailgates because the EGG is about community and having fun, so make sure if you’re inviting company you make extra - the food will be gone before you know it! Don't forget dessert, either!

Big Green Egg headquarters has moved - come visit our new showroom and check out the museum and culinary center too! 3786 DeKalb Technology Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340

First brisket cooked.....I feel like I have given birth

Cooked @225 for 10hrs or so, foiled for the last 3 hrs just because I was afraid we were never going to eat...overall great meat but the bark wasn't what I expected.....maybe because I foiled it but I didn't seem to stick to the meat as I wanted...Can't wait to go at her again!!!

    You can fix that by not cooking at 225. That's way too low for an egg cook. Try 250-300. I did my last one at 280 and it was great.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    I did one at 275-280 today and the bark came out great,, didn't foil it...just let the brisket be the brisket.

    225* is to low to cook unless you are retired and have nothing better to do.  Agree with @travisstrick you need to be above 250* at least. Nothing wrong with the product from today though. Welcome, and always post your cooks.  The rest of us need inspiration.
