    @Dragonwmatches, thanks, the label was vague , it said, "whole untrimmed brisket", and that's all.I am seeking out a packer that I can fit on my med egg for next brisky cook now!! Yours looks fantastic, I want the lean and the juicy!!

    Yeah, I really will need to look at it closely beforehand next time. The grains go different directions, so really I should have removed the point and cut it separately.

    That looks great! I'm no brisket expert, but that's definitely the flat. Looks from one pic that they left just a smidgen of point above the fat line in the middle, which is what I had on the Sams Club flat I did last week. See the separation here - mine had more of the point left on, unbeknownst to me beforehand. Great cook!!

    Both of those are really impressive. Especially the surgery part! 400 indirect - any smoking chips or straight lump?

  • Pizza experiments tonight

    I did a couple pizzas the other night on the Egg, but the dough wasn't right. Sunday I made a batch of the NY Pizza Dough linked on here recently and let it sit in the fridge until tonight, where I made it into three ingredient experiments. Used Saturday night's smoked pork butt on all three. The first had tomato sauce, pineapple, pulled pork & sharp white cheddar - good, but the cheddar dominated. Second was Sweet Baby Rays with pulled pork, canned mushrooms & Wisconsin cow milk mozzarella - this was the most barbequey, as the mozz didn't have a strong flavor. The last had good pepperoni, pulled pork, mushrooms on tomato sauce with the cheddar - this had the most balance to it. Still needs the right combination, but the dough was definitely the right one.

    what is the cause of this?

    More mass back there with the hinge is my guess, but I'm not a physicist. I try to remember to set up the ring so that a leg is square in the back middle to disperse that heat a bit on indirects.
