  • My best brisket (flat) to date! (Texas style)

    So - im a BBQer far far away from Texas (Denmark), but i still love the idea of the old ways of doing BBQ.

    The result = endless trials with brisket, and this i my best to this date!

    The meat is a Flat - the only cut i can get in Denmark - but i found US meat! Its around 4-5 pounds.

    And the placed in the Egg in this beautiful snowy landscape. The temp was 230 F dome (not outside :-) With cherry and apple chips for smoke. Was unable to find oak :-( (What should be the "texas" smoke for brisket).

    I pulled the meat at 154 F (after around 5 hours)

    .... to wrap the brisket in paper.

    And back to the egg!

    I pulled the meat at 192 F (but i think it could have taken a bit more), that was around 3-4 hours after wrapping.
