Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
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!

Big Green Egg headquarters has moved - come visit our new showroom and check out the museum and culinary center too! 3786 DeKalb Technology Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340

Let's get it on!

Actually got it on already.  My first briset.  My wife is pretty doubtful that it will turn out right but I told her it would be alright 'cause I got a real-live Texan telling me how to do it.

    3 hrs in and it's at 139.  That seems a little high.  The dome is reading 275.

    You haven't hit the stall yet.  If you were like me on my first overnight brisket I was up every couple of hours checking on it. 

    I just put a 12.5 lb beast on 20 mins. ago.  The Stoker has it under control for the night.

    1st brisket done with few left overs.  Overall I'm pleased but will try Travis method next time.  The flat was drier than I wanted. The burnt ends rocked. 

    Maybe I'm just spoiled after trying the sous vide bisket at the eggfest in Winston-Salem last week.
