Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

I'd like to thank ThirdEye and Bubba Tim for the info on their sites. Great stuff :)

This was my first go at a brisket. I actually just tasted my first brisket this summer at NiEggaraFest. It was superb.
This cook was for practice, so no stress to have it ready for a meal. I started this early in the morning so I could watch how the Egg operates.

Some pics
The brisket was rubbed with mustard then Dizzy Dust(Thanks Mike) Left in the fridge,overnight

Next morning, up at 5am and had the fire stabilized and ready to go at 7am. Brisket went on.

Now the hard part. Hands off :laugh:
Leave it alone, let the Egg do it's thing
Ran a steady 250

Had my first peek at hour 7, the smell was unbearable

This is when this bad boy settled into it's plateau for a long winters nap :laugh: It was interesting to watch. At hour 15, I had a internal temp of 196 and it was feeling pretty tender. A little corner even fell right off :evil:
It was pulled and put in a cooler.

The point was removed, seasoned and put back on for a few hours

It was getting late so I pulled the point after 3 hours and put everything in the fridge.
Just got a couple of pics the next day before guests arrived for dinner(they would NOT understand taking pics of food :angry: )
This was the point. It was chopped up mixed with some SBR. Reheated on the Egg. Amazing, simply amazing

This is a pic of the brisket. I just cleaned up the side I was picking at :evil: This is cut with the grain

We served this to our guest and they loved it. It got gobbled up pretty quick. Very tender, great beef flavour were the comments. :)
This was a lot of fun, and I have a great respect for this cut of meat and what it takes to cook it. Was great to see how well the Egg works on these type of cooks. Will try another real soon.

Thanks for looking

Shane
