Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It’s time to kick back, relax and enjoy the aromas of fresh smoked meat as we sail towards summer. Not sure what to smoke? Try Down & Dizzy Pork Shoulder or Smoked Spanish Chicken. Now that Spring is in the air, it's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

$1.99/lbs... I got a guy...

Greetings friends,

This time with homemade rub. Very exciting...

    Like Mr Apple says, what's the plan and what was in that fantastic looking rub? How did it taste?
    Using quality ingredients in home made rubs can be very good. It is easier to control the salt content, we find many commercial rubs have too much salt. 
    I have a plain Jane BBQ rub that a friend thought was so good he asked for the recipe. He made it and was very dissappointed. Seems he used dollar store spices that were of questionable quality and age. Use quality ingredients.

  • It's resting before the cook tonight.

    I'll put it on tonight at 250* with Mesquite and a seasoned water bath.  Expecting 12 hours.

    Rub:

    1/2 cup hot paprika
    1/4 cup salt (pink Himalayan) 
    1/4 cup pepper (fresh ground white, green, black, red)
    1/4 cup sugar
    2 Tbs- garlic powder, granulated onion, hot chili powder
    2 tsp- cayenne

    Spicy, fragrant, and enough for about two briskets.

    Spices all came from a specialty spice store here in town.  Supposedly, they are all fresh to within a week.  Figured I'd see what the hubbub was about with this place... My ingredients, minus salt/pepper/sugar which I had at the house, were around $13, making the rub comparatively the most expensive part of the cook.

    Looks good, and good ain't cheap, but it is good if done right. Final pics?

  • Just getting ready to pull it off now - loooong stall and sitting at 196* now without passing the fork test...

  • That was really different but I guess all briskets are. Stalled at 180 for four hours then again at 196 without passing the fork test for another six. Goes to show you have to really watch your temps and your doneness.

    Flat is FTCed an the point is back on with more rub for a bit of burnt end greatness.

    Just ate some ribs and was looking at your post. I have to admit that I'm drooling a little.

    This brisket came froma local farm and would probably be classified as prime. First time I've done a prime brisket. At this price I'll be doing one a week.

  • Just one more pic. Decided to throw the point and an old frozen point back on the BGE to see how far I could take the burnt ends. Reseasoned with rub and left whole.

    Left overnight for twelve hours or so.

    These chunks are transformed into concentrated brisket bombs. Amazing.

    As a side note - my BGE has now been chugging along for 36 hours and not showing signs of quitting. I love it.

    The one on the left is the one from the bottom grate. Hotter down there by 20 degrees.

    Thanks for reading! See you in the next one.
