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!

Hey! What're you using to slice YOUR briskets?

Greetings, friends!

SSIA -  I see all these beautiful brisket posts with thin gorgeous slices, and I look at my own hack-job slices...  And I'm ready!

Are you all using electric knives?  What's your trick?

Thanks!

    I use a Victorinox 12" graton edge slicer #40645 and just keep it really sharp. I'm happy with how it slices:

    I keep my Henckels sharp, but still had difficulties with the bark on a brisket; love using my Cuisinart electric knife now:

    I use an electric carving knife as well. I also use a 10 inch slicing knife but you don't have the same control. Not to say it can't be done.

    No shots of this knife w. a cooked brisket, but here's a slice off a piece of corned brisket just before it is going into the slow cooker.

    A Kikuichi TKC 240mm gyuto. The edge bevel, as near as I can tell is 12 degrees per side. Don't yet have the sharpening skills to bring it to top performance. But it glides thru everything I've tried.
