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

Bigguy's Second Brisket Packer

After what I learned on the first brisket, I thought I would try a few changes. I started with a 14 lb USDA choice packer ($3.17/ lb)

A quick trim

I removed the point from the flat before cooking. I want to be able to pull each when they are ready and not wait for the other half.

I did a double pan for the drippings. I filled the first pan with water and floated the second pan. Hoping to keep the temp lower on the drippings.

On goes the brisket

About 14 hours later and at 200°

Getting the burnt ends going. It was nice to pull the point without disturbing the flat.

I was 250° until I went thru the stall then I went to 300°. Brisket is resting now.

Now for my question. I have the drippings and they look good. Should I pour them back over the brisket? Mix with something? Throw them away?
