It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • Re: 1st brisket! How's my plan sound?

    Yes... most definitly...liquid in the pan...(unless you want burning fat smoke on your meat and in the pit). As long as the brisket will be on...your temps will equalize. I do usually try to leave plenty of space between the bottom of my cook (butts and brisket) and the drip pan.

    You're looking to get good air circulation between the pan and meat if you can...and it will help with bark formation on the bottom.

    Good luck!!
