ok it's really for me.

This is my first attempt

I have a 7lb brisket flat.   Plan is to cook at 225ish on the XL BGE.  I need this to be ready for 11am brunch on Sunday Morning.

I plan to follow this approach from 
travisstricktravisstrick

When do I put it on the egg to be ready for 11 am Sunday morning?

    When i made a 7 lber it took 14 hours with foil.
    Make sure that the egg is up to temp for 9. Give yourself plenty of time to get that fire to a good stable place.

  • yeah, but he is braising it using Trav's recipe. It's a little different. I'm sure he will chime in before it's time to go.

    Wasn't calling you out,  Just noting that braising and smoking are 2 different processes and I dunno how long Trav's takes.

    I cooked a seven pound flat last weekend. went on at 8am sliced at 11pm. 240* dome, put it on and did not even look at it again until the thermo hit 170*  Foiled it until 195* rested for @ 2 hrs then sliced. I would haved put it up, but when i went to there was no forum to be found ?? Anyway good luck. ....No pics is like it never happened.

    The day begins

    I cleaned out the egg - to insure good airflow!

    The brisket is trimmed; coated in mustard and Number 2 brisket rub from Texasbbqrub.com   I plan to get it going around 8pm tonight.  Here is a pic.  it is a bit hard to see with the saran wrap around it.  More pics later.

  • Only thing you can mess up at this point is by not slicing it across the grain when it's ready to eat. If you cook it Trav's way and slice it right, it should be great.
