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!

hey guys-
i could use some sagely advice from the elders here...
i have great success with boston butts by cooking about 2 hours per pound at 250 degrees, i was wondering how long i need to cook beef brisket per pound at 250 degrees. thanks.


  • Pipedream,
    The rule of thumb I have seen on here is 1.5 to 2 hours per pound. I did an 8 lb. brisket this past weekend. It cooked 10 hours then 2 hours in the cooler, wrapped in foil. It turned out perfect. From what I hear on the forums, every piece of meat has its own personality. Some cook faster, some slower.
