It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Overnight brisket

I'm doing my first overnight brisket and have been struggling with temps all night. I thought I had it stabilized at dome 250 or so, but a couple hours in it was up to 300. So it was cooking faster than expected. I adjusted the vents a bit but it wouldn't come down. I started at 6:30 (now thinking way too early) and by 9:30 or so it was at 150-160. I foiled, injected and added beef broth in the foil at 160 b/c I didn't want it to be too dry. Now the dome temp has come back into the 225-250 range, and I've take it out of the foil to get some bark on it.. But I've just watched my digital thermometer drop 8 degrees (from 185 to 177) in the last 30 minutes or so.. Is this natural? Does the stall do that? Thanks for any help!
