Is your Big Green Egg still cooking even though it’s cold out? We hope so! We love the opportunity to cook heartier meals on the EGG during the winter. Some recipes you definitely want to try are Double Smoked Potatoes, BBQ Chicken Soup, Monte Cristo Sandwich and Breakfast Quiche. These are sure to keep your stomach warm & full! We can’t wait to see what winter-inspired dishes you cook!

Is it possible?

250* brisket went on at 7 am mountain time.  Currently it is 1:22 pm. I am reading 200* internal.  Six hours?  Thermo probe goes in like a hot knife into butter.

    Make sure you  are checking in the thickest part of the flat...If so and it's tender then congrats-BTW cooking packer or flat and what size as all those factor into the cow and the finish-line.  FWIW-

    I have it in towels in the cooler until the Mrs is done working....two more hours.  I want to eat my arm off.

    Yup, that's doable, especially if you were only off 15 degrees on your thermo.

    Listen to Louis!
