It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page
for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day
is National Bacon Day
and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here
First brisket going to be tomorrow...
Picked up a 5 lb flat at Costco today. Was going to get a packer but not home tonight so could not start until tomorrow morning. Going to go with S&P rub for my first. Then plan on going with a 275-300 dome (over a drip pan with Spaten Optimator, Beef Broth, Onions, "what's this here sauce" and garlic and cayenne) until I hit about 165 internal. At that point I am going to place the flat into the drip pan with only about half exposed (a la Travis method). When it gets to 195 I will probe until tender. Then FTC until dinner. I plan on posting pics of the process and results. Hope I remember... :-D
Wish me luck!
