There are 3 - 8lb butts on the top of the XL and a prime brisket on the bottom. This will be feeding 40 people tomorrow at lunch time. Cyber-q is set right now at 240 and humming along nicely. I may bump it up later to be sure they finish by 8AM.


Found this at our local Star Market. I have never tried a prime brisket, but is was cheaper than a choice brisket at Sam's

Trimmed and rubbed brisket.

Butts ready to put on. I rubbed them with a mix of 50/50 Butt Rub and Swamp Venom.

    I can make it if I leave now!Looks like it would be worth the drive! ;)
  • Gene,

    I need to talk to you about something. Can you call me at 888 749 5182 sometime tomorrow. It's toll free.

  • How much on the prime brisket? I'm thinking of doing one Saturday and I might go to Star in the morning. You been to Gainesville yet for your new toy?
  • I am not sure that I would want that PRIME brisket to taste like pork butt, even as much as I like pork fat.....
  • Nice - I have looked for a prime brisket but haven't found one yet. I must be looking in the wrong spots.
  • Uh oh, what did I do now!. Steven, tomorrow is a very busy day. I may be able to call later in the day, but anything before lunch it definitely out. Is it too late now?
  • Not yet, and Eddie has first dibs on it. If he passes, I have you in mind for it.

    The brisket was right at $3 per pound
  • Thanks Gene. I'm very curious on how it turns out. Let me know. I may be calling for tips.
  • It will be fine. I typically do my briskets under my butts for longer cooks. No problems with flavor so far.

    Looks great Gene! :woohoo: I love star mkt. Used to live right next to it before we moved out to OXR.

    I wish I were one of those 40! What rub did you use for the brisket?
  • Anytime Heath.
  • Lotta bull red dirt for the brisket. They sell it at Star.
  • Gene,

    No it's not too late but that is a work number. Is there a number I can call you. Home e-mail is Forum e-mail goes to work.

  • You have email
  • Good luck with the lunch tomorrow. To bad you do not have to drive through Decatur to serve that lunch. I would have loved to try some of your BBQ!! Maybe next time. You could have also picked up a Banana Cream pie for Dessert!! Hoss's BBQ
    do not know why I posted this under Little Steven's comments sorry Steven
  • Where you at in Decatur? I work in Decatur and live in Athens.
  • Just bought my Egg a few weeks ago plan on cooking 2-3 butts when I get home on 16 October. Do you alway use foil under the butts is there a right or wrong and how many hours.
  • We will be in downtown Huntsville, sorry. I just pulled the brisket off, it sure looks good. It may be slightly over done, I used the tongs to get it out from under the 2 tier rack. It was wanting to pull apart at the grain near the point. Butts are 185-191 and need just a little more time.
  • No, I don't always use foil under the butts. I had the egg (guru) set at 240 and put the butts on last night around 7. They are close to done 12 hours later.
  • I work at Big Bob Gibson's at the 6th Ave store. I moved here from Wv in April. Stop by sometime! Gene has been by to see me twice now. Hoss

    Let's see pics of the final product Gene... :)
    I will be doing a few "fast" butts for my kids tomorrow to take to a party they are hosting... :silly:
  • Kim, they are wrapped and resting in a cooler right now.

    I could be there by noon, EASY! Birmingham is just an hour away.

  • This is the first one I've found. I have had wagyu, CAB and now prime. I think I like the prime the best.
  • It was gone when lunch was over. Thankfully, I held the point in the cooler and was ble to bring it home and cubeit. I think the primes is the best I've done so far.
