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!

Big Green Egg headquarters has moved - come visit our new showroom and check out the museum and culinary center too! 3786 DeKalb Technology Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340

And so it begins... first brisket!

    wrap in Foil, wrap that in Towels, place in a Cooler. Keeps things warm for many hours. Great for resting butts and briskets or holding them for travel.

    What happened when C-T let it cool in the FTC???
    you're just going to have to find out for yourself :)

    Kidding.  When you let it cool a little to where it's easy to handle with your bare hands before cutting, it changes the the texture in a very good way.

    @TheCenTexSmoker Have you tried the Grand Champion rub by Texas BBQ Rub? Curious about it.
    I have. @cazzy sent me some a while back. I thought it was really good but it was too sweet for me. The quality is great, just wasn't my favorite flavor profile. I would try it again though. I go through phases on what I like. Right now, I'm loving the Bad Byrons. The last 3 or 4 briskets I made ad it and I got more compliments than ever. It's also when I started doing the rest and let it cool down trick but the flavor and bark texture (even after a long hold in the cooler) have been awesome since I switched to it a few months ago. i'm doing another one tonight. Just have to back that Salado brisket up so I don't forget what I did. Brisket for dinner tomorrow night.

    come to think of it, I still have some of that grand champ left. I don't think enough to do a whole brisket. I say go for it though. It's really good quality stuff


    What time should we get there!

  • Ha Ricky!- I hope this one makes it longer than 5 minutes but I'm having 5 14 year olds over so it might not.

    So the wife and I finally had some brisket and although, the smoke ring was minimal, it had a lot of flavor.  Good flavor penetration from the rub, not enough smoke flavor though.  Overall, if I had to grade it I'd say a solid 'B'.

  • Looks pretty good. Keep it up. The A's aren't far behind the solid B's

    The crazy part is that after a sixteen hour smoke, I had this much lump left.

    We had ours earlier, it was a little dry but had really good flavor, overall it was fair, happy with first attempt.
