Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

first brisket in the books

Just salt and pepper for rub. I peppered first, let it sit in the fridge for a few hours and salted right before I went on the egg. Put it on at 4am, 225ish. No crutch, indirect the whole time. Egg was stable and never added coals. I stirred with a few hours left since I was inexperienced. It didn't need it, there were plenty of coals- and it basically clogged my grate with ash. Had to open my bottom grate much more to keep 225 afterwards.

Reached 195 IT at 5 pm, FTC for an hour. Pretty tasty, not much left. :-)

I just learned the best part off cooking your own brisket - it's first dibs on burnt ends.

Happy Cinco folks!

    Looks great!

    Incredible job on your first brisket cook.  I have yet to do one and would be happy with those results.

    Thanks guys - means a lot. I forgot to mention, I used Ozark oak today for the first time. I used b&b before that and was not happy with it. Ozark oak is much much better, fast light and came to clear smoke quickly.
