It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

I have an LBGE and the 13 lb brisket i bought is too long, Costco whole packer.  I need to trim it but want to make sure i do it right.  Any tips would be appreciated.  Can i screw it up?  Thanks a mill

    Make two tin foil balls about 3in in diameter. Place them in the middle of the brisket. That should make it fit until it cooks down. 
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    I cut the point from the flat before cooking and with the point getting done before the flat, you can pull the point off when it's done.
