  • FTC = Foil, Towel, Cooler

    Foil the  meat, wrap in a couple of towels, and place in a cooler for a few hours if needed.

    FTC= foil, towels and cooler.  Allows for the results of the low&slow to be held for hours (4-5 at least) and still remain hot enough to slice/pull and immediately serve.  A faux cambrio-and all good egger's have coolers around for those supervisory adult beverages.

    Hey Hapster, I thought I read in a previous post you were going to do the Travis method on the brisket. Did you ever put the brisket in a pan, or wrap the brisket at any time? Just curious what all you did. It looks great!

    Thanks guys.., this was just a straight low and slow the whole way to 204 and then into the cooler. Still there will be sliced in about 1-1/2 hours.

    Egg looks filthy so I just fired the lump for a clean burn.
  • Doesn't it say a lot about the egg when you do a 12 hour cook an then just flip open the vents come back in ten minutes and its pegged out at 700•

  • Looks awesome Hap, glad that it turned out to be your best. You deserved a good cook.

    Thanks... I am little behind in my blogging; work has gotten a little in the way. I have all of the pics just need to get the posts together... Hopefully I'll make up some ground this week.

    Thanks everyone... the brisket was very tender (I think this might be the first one that I sliced just right as well); though it was a little on the drier side, at least in the flat. I will have to see when I reheat it today how the point turned out. The flavor was great, not sure how much the injecting helped with that, but it didn't hurt it I guess
