We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

I am going to attempt my first brisket tomorrow. What should I know? Temp? Cooking time? Tips?

    Good luck with your first attempt. I have had some that were outstanding and some that were fit for shoe leather, so don't get discouraged.
    Try to maintain temp around 225 if you can. Cooking time can vary but probably will be about 2 hrs per pound. I did one today that was fast getting to 165 but then took 5 hours to get to 185. Remember they will hit a plateau so don't worry. And don't tinker with the egg to get it to burn hotter so it will cook faster, remember this is low and slow. I cook with fat side down and be sure to cook indirect. Visit with playing with fire and smoke for more tips, great site as well as the Naked Whiz. You will see a lot of good info on cooking brisket. Not the easiest thing to do but really good if it turns out right
    Good Luck
