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!

First brisket cooked.....I feel like I have given birth

Cooked @225 for 10hrs or so, foiled for the last 3 hrs just because I was afraid we were never going to eat...overall great meat but the bark wasn't what I expected.....maybe because I foiled it but I didn't seem to stick to the meat as I wanted...Can't wait to go at her again!!!

    You can fix that by not cooking at 225. That's way too low for an egg cook. Try 250-300. I did my last one at 280 and it was great.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    I did one at 275-280 today and the bark came out great,, didn't foil it...just let the brisket be the brisket.

    225* is to low to cook unless you are retired and have nothing better to do.  Agree with @travisstrick you need to be above 250* at least. Nothing wrong with the product from today though. Welcome, and always post your cooks.  The rest of us need inspiration.
