  • I think you took it off too soon.  I've never had a brisket get done in the low 190's.   I've had them stall in the high 180's or low 190's.   You are working in a different elevation, so the game might be completely different there. 
  • I did a 12 pounder last weekend and it was perfect. My brisket cooking has been simplified through the years and they just keep getting better. Grade of meat makes a difference.  Choose a choice or prime cut over select, for sure.  You can make it a…
  • I always do them indirect but you are going to get opinions on both sides. Just go with it.  I get the same results at higher temps or lower temps.  Cooking time is longer at lower temps, of course, and skin is always good at low temps or high temps…
  • Hindquarters are great for making venison stew.  You could do it in a Dutch oven in the egg or in a crockpot on the countertop.  Cube the meat, and brown with heavy amounts of seasonings. Use beef broth stock as your base liquid and add your basic v…
  • Mine almost always go up 10 degrees after indirect cooking so I pull them at 100-105 and let them rest until the temp peaks out.  After that, I hot sear for 2-3 minutes on each side (longer on cast iron) and that brings me to about 130 to 135 after …
  • Before making patties, sprinkle with garlic salt and Montreal Steak seasoning.  Form the patties and apply a light coat of kosher salt on both sides.  Cook direct at about 350 with lid closed, flipping occasionally until internal temp is above 160. 
  • This thread is entertaining. 
  • Don't over cook it!
  • Glad I could help.  A man can't have too many guns. 
  • Glad I could help. Happy shooting.  WeberWho said: My wife just bought one. Thanks! @Terrebandit
  • tarheelmatt said: I've never done this type of thing, shipping wise. Always bought local. I do have a CC licence. Does the FFL charge a fee (sure they do)? No, you do not have to have a conceal carry.  The FFL will charge about 25 bucks.…
  • I suspect that BGE uses comments on this forum to make decisions about future product offerings or to gauge satisfaction levels with current products. If they are objective, this kind of information could be useful to them.  If you like other produc…

  • This stuff is really good but expensive. I normally go with kosher salt and pepper, Montreal steak seasoning, or a combination of both.  I might add some garlic powder or …
  • Those are mighty thin. If I was shooting for medium rare and wanted any kind of crust at all, I'd hit them at a very high heat in a lightly oiled cast iron pan and flip them after a couple minutes on each side.  Have your Thermopen handy and be read…
  • I've never seen that on a Costco brisket.

  • I'm not sure how it's "possible with practice" without intervention. The fastest way would be to use a Kick Ash Basket so you could remove the hot lump, open the egg up to cool down the outer ceramics, and at some point add back your hot lump and a…
  • Looks great!

  • Here are a couple things I made. 
  • Nothing wrong with Walmart choice briskets.  Made plenty of them. 
  • bhedges1987 said: Used it for th first time today on both eggs. I was holding it in one spot for 30-40 seconds and when I let off it seemed nothing was really lit. The second attempt on my large egg I did the same and noticed some of the coals…
