Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

"Franklin Style" Brisket - killed it.

This is definitely my brisket opus magnum.   I'm not one that cooks many briskets, and when I do, it's just as likely ground up into burgers, or corned beef or pastrami.  I've cooked more than a few, but have never been that excited about cooking them because, although I'll get some good point meat, I always end up with some complaint - dry flat usually.  I've only had brisket a few times that was at that top level, and you don't have to be a connoisseur to identify it.  Cen-Tex brought some to Salado. 

When I was cooking this brisket, I had that feeling that's hard to describe, but a good analogy might be, you shoot a basket and long before you see the ball score, you have that feeling that everything is right about it, and you don't even need to watch it go in. 

Anyway, this cook resulted in the best brisky I've ever cooked, and I think I've ever eaten.  Even the flat was fall apart tender and moist.  The flavor was phenomenal.  SWMBO who normally isn't crazy about brisket said it was "special".  I was so excited, I wanted to share with some friends and neighbors, so I made a few calls and packaged up some to share the spoils.

Details to follow.

This is my signature line just so you're not confused.
