    First one tomorrow in LBGE Fat cap-- up or down Rub on night before or minutes before? Rub on both sides including fat cap? Inject? If so the night before or minutes before ? Can it be done at 275?

    You may already have her on, but I don't think it makes a difference if fact cap is up or down or its rubbed the night before or right before. I have never injected a brisket; 250-300 should be fine. I did a flat at 300 that was very good.

    That's a fear of mine too. We are the beach for a couple weeks, and I hope the large is still there when we get back! I can keep a close eye on the mini while here. I think anyone caught for stealing a BGE should get the death penalty ;)

  • The Mini Working Overtime at the Beach - 3 part meal all on the mini

    I wanted to share a couple photos/ideas, not because that this cook is special or unique, but rather to show off the mini's cooking capacity & versatility.  We are spending a few weeks down on St Simons Island, and the mini came with us (actually, that's why I got the mini in the first place).  We had some friends down for the weekend; I egged our entire meal on the mini last Saturday night. 

    Started off the the meal with 2 lbs of fresh GA shrimp cooked in the wok (mini-woo set up).  The shrimp were given a little olive oil then tossed in some adobo seasoning.

    Next phase was grilled corn on the cob - rubbed in olive oil then salt & pepper.  Grilled raised direct on woo till some kernels started to char and turn black.


    The last round was the tri-tip steaks.  Had 9 small tri tip steaks that I never thought would all fit at one time, but they did.  Cooked around 600-650 raised direct on woo until they were at 125*-135* then pulled to let rest.

    For what its worth, I did not have to reload any lump.  I was running the mini hot for a good 45-60 minutes and still had some lump leftover.

    Takeaways - the mini is a fuel efficient workhorse.  With some arranging, the cooking space is more than meets the eye.  Everything that comes off it tastes pretty damn good.

    Not pictured - beverage of choice was Makers and soda water.

  • Re: Beach Vacation. MINI makes the trip

    I have the woo and pizza stone for indirect and I already packed my dizzy dust! Did you pull out dome therm? Did you basically turbo it? I was thinking a 3-4 lb BB. I got our mini in April and have used it more than the large since we got it.
