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

Cooking first brisket this weekend. Any tips/suggestions/pointers? Would search the board but almost to store so out of time. Rub? Injection? Method? Thanks all!

    Trim hard fat
    Rub with plain yellow mustard then coat with your rub of choice, even just salt and pepper if you're desperate 
    Set up Egg for 225-280 indirect with a drip pan that is elevated off the platesetter. Add water to pan to keep fat from burning.

    Clean egg completely out and make sure all air hole are open. If you want to get into it, stack larger pieces of charcoal at the bottom to prevent clogs.  

    Cook till around 195 and start checking tenderness around 190.  Could be done anywhere from 190-205.

    Oh and make sure you have enough charcoal.  I load well above the firebox, usually half way up the fire ring.
