    I have found over the years the best advice i can give ya is to get the biggest brisket you can to fit on the egg. the bigger the better to keep it moist. The next tip is to start it early and keep it low and slow. I found if I can keep the egg around 220 the whole time the better it turns outs. Also don"t forget to let it rest for at least an hour or two. It is tough to wait it out, but you will be thankful. If you need any help along the way, you are in the right spot. Good luck and I can"t wait to see the pics and hear of your sucess!! ;) B)

    This is what I've got to work with. It's very trimmed out. Concerned about moisture retention. Weighs in a 2.63 pounds.

    I decided to do a slab of Beef Ribs also. Gonna Raise Rig them over the brisket in hopes to keep the brisket moist. First time cooking beef ribs as well. About how long per pound for the brisket and what temp to pull it do y'all think?
