It’s almost Halloween and if you’re cooking on your EGG, you may end up with more people knocking on your door asking for pork chops than candy! In case you’re willing to share and want to please a crowd, we recommend warm Margherita Pizza, FGL’s Lemon Pepper Wings or our favorite, S’mores in a Cone!


If you missed the 17th Annual EGGtoberfest here are the highlights Click Here Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

I started with a 13.5lb packer on tuesday. Trimmed the fat to 1/4". Cut the packer in half. The point/flat end weighed in 5.5lb. The flat end weighed in at 5.625. I cut 1.25lb off the flat, and trimmed the 4.5lb part to bare muscle. I was very surprised at the amount of fat trimmed from this.

Tuesday was brisket cheese burgers. I used the 1.25lb to grind.  600* raised direct. Quite tasty... Once the burgers were devoured,  I started to brine using the recipe shared by @setdahook (thanks it was great!). Then I food savered the point for a saturday morning smoke... A weeks worth of flipping the corned beef...
 Saturday came and I started my smoke at 5am. Thanks to @ The Cen-Tex Smoker for recommending using a higher grid temp for low n slow. It sped my cook and left the meat more moist. Point finished a little after 1:00pm. FTC and left to see some relatives. (brisket was for friends later at my house). Got home and sliced the most tender brisket that ever touched my tongue! Friends never made it for brisket. (their loss) My wife and I each ate one sandwich...
 Sunday morning came and I woke up to find my brisket still on my counter. (Boo Hoo WAAHHHH!) Tossed my most tender brisket ever in the trash. (should have asked Momo first I guess).... Pulled out my corned beef and soaked for a hour in ice water. This thing smelled amazing from the foodsaver bag! Did a quick smoke with JD oak till 140. Foiled with a cup of apple juice and returned till 165* internal temp. It tasted great. After tasting the difference I don't think I'll buy them corned anymore.
It was a fun (and a little sad) journey! Thanks eggers for the tips to get me great results. Pic time!
