5 hour brisket results

Made a 5 hour brisket per mad mad beyond eggdome's instructions. It turned out pretty good. It was a 6.5 lb flat, smoked for 2 hours at 250 dome temp, then tightly double wrapped in foil and back on until done. When I put it back on, the internal temp was 145. Once back on, I set the dome temp to 275 and the internal hit 200 in just 2 more hours. Maybe, I should have left the dome temp at 250 and let in cook longer. It was very good and there was around 2 cups of great juice to go with it.[p]<img src=>[p]Oh, and this is my prototype for a XXL BGE. It has a 34" cooking grid and over 900 square inches of cooking area. I haven't pitched it to the BGE folks yet. I still have a few design issues to work out. Thought I'd give you chaps first peek. It is a little squat looking, isn't it?[p]<img src=>[p]


  • Yazoo,
    That brisket looks great... yum... mouth watering
    noises (is that even possible?).[p]however, the xxl prototype looks like a land mine!

  • Yazoo,
    glad the quickie brisket worked out for you ok. . .after i foil mine, i let the dome temp go on up to 300+ (per directions i saw on tv). . .cause its foiled so tight, it won't lose moisture. .. it just gets a little more "pot roasty". . .. i just think the juice you get in the foil makes it all worthwhile though, that's some good stuff. ..your pic looks great. . .[p]i like your xl. ..might be hard to get a turkey in there though :o)
