We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • Just got a 12 1/2 lb brisket from a half a cow I purchased from a friend. Ready to try my first brisket this weekend for sunday dinner. i have read all the posts and have to say I am alittle nervous to give it a go!! From what i've read I am going to go with a temp of about 250 and figure about a good 15 hrs of cook. I can handle the rub but I am wondering on fat side down of up? Also how much wood will I need for a 15-17 hr cook? Do I trim the brisket any more than what the processer did? 

       Thanks for all the help!  I will post pics as I go!!
