Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

BRISKET... new to BGE, tips needed

just bought a large BGE. been reading up on tips and differ ways that people go about smoking their briskets. i have noticed that there seems to be a consensus to reach a internal temp of 180-185, as this allows the fat to render and meat to be tender. i guess my biggest question is how to reach this temp without completely drying out your meat? i have heard people say to wrap and then some say not to wrap? or to mop vs not to mop? just trying to get some ideas. tried a smaller brisket flat a few days ago and didn't reach that internal temp because i felt like meat was drying out, came out with good flavor but not nearly tender enough. any tips are much appreciated!
