Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

"High Heat" Brisket

I decided to have fun with my XL this afternoon and smoke 2 brisket flats (8lb and 8.5lb) at 325*-ish.  I usually smoke whole packer briskets at 225-250* until I hit 185* in the thickest part of the flat.  I may have a hit or I may be drinking my sorrows away with some nice Saint Arnold Spring Bock...either way, I win.

8lb & 8.5lb Cryovac Angus flats
Ozark Oak Lump
Mesquite Chunks
Drip pan with water and beer
Dry rub (one with Hinze's Brisket Rub and the other with course sea salt, course ground pepper, and garlic powder)
Fat side down

I decided to go fat side down in hopes to not "leatherize" the bottom 1/4 inch of my briskets.  We will see how that works out.  Made my own sauce last night, hopefully it isn't necessary.  I'll try to get some after pics.  Plate setter is white because I went nuclear yesterday to clean the egg a bit.
