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 bought a CAB 6 lb whole brisket the other day and a couple chuck roasts. My original plan was to ground the chuck and cut off some of the brisket to mix in like many have posted here and maybe try a 4lb brisket on the mini, seeing that I had success with 2lbs.

Well temptation gave in and I decided to try and stuff the whole thing cutting the point from the flat. So I got it in there and closed up, but in the end the fat from the point I think was too much. There was overhang, outside the heat deflector and the fire began to flare up after 30 mins or so. So i had to pull em both and get the fire down, actually snuffed it and came back an hour later.
Now I am sitting 275 - 300 degrees, got the flat that must be close to 4lbs if not more in there and its been 2+ hours. The point has been chopped up and is sitting in the freezer with the chuck to get quick froze for a grind in the KA. At least I get to try chuck and brisket ground beef.

Did I see someone say I should try a point only on the mini? Would it come out better? It looked so good as I was chopping it up for the grind, I was picturing burnt ends etc.

This was point and Flat

Maybe Ill post result of the 4lber later, I got some time hope its done by dinner.
