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

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!
