Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

The 17th Annual EGGtoberfest was amazing - here are the highlights Click Here

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.
