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

First brisket - Travis method All the briskets were small at Costco on Friday night so I ended up with a 5.3 lb one. I prepped the bath with the onion, Allegro and my choice of beer: I prepped the brisket, mustard, then a mix of freshly ground kosher salt, fresh ground black pepper, almost as much garlic pepper and some cayenne pepper So I got the egg going and ready about 11:30 pm on Friday night.  I had my alarm on for 200 degree and got the alarm at 5:30, that was early!!!!!  So I wrapped foiled toweled and bricked in the cooler - I heat up 2.5 bricks in 400 toaster oven then put them in the bottom of the cooler - cooler has mdf board on the bottom so as not to have it melt and small towels around the bricks to protect the sides of the cooler.  We ended up eating later then expected, 3:00 ish, so I warmed it up in the oven.  Great flavor, and I reduced the marinade to have it as a sauce - very good - very spicy, which I like, too spicy for the better half and the MIL. I almost remembered the pre-slice shot: Then sliced it up: For sides, easy to fix corn on the cob, my home made cole slaw and Publix's red potato salad - that's always great.  Had some pitchers of margarita's that hit the spot.
