I am going to put on a brisket late tonight for a 3 pm BBQ tomorrow. I was thinking of a mustard rub with a DP Dizzy Dust sprinkle. For a mop I was planning on a beer and vinegar concoction (sp?). If I run around 225 for 16 hrs (8#'er). Will I be done in 16 hrs?

    Should be no problem, but give yourself time to let it sit for a couple of hours. I like my brisket to sit for 2 and my butts to sit for 4. This was if your timing is a bit off, you have the wiggle room.

    Good egging! Have a great weekend!
  • You should be ok but cook to temperature of 195 to 200 deg. temperature and not rely on time. I don't bother with mopping, just rub it with what seems good, put it in the egg and don't look until the thermometer says it's done. I usually wind up cooking at 240, seems what the egg prefers.
