the 6 hour brisket again

edited 8:12PM in EggHead Forum
picked up another Brisket this week,6.6 lbs flat, to try again with FLPoolmans style of cooking :cheer: I wanted to see if it was a fluke :pinch:
I seasoned it well with Canadian steak seasoning
then onto the egg direct at 350 for 1.5 hours, flip and another 1.5 at 350 direct.. used the froggmatt again! love those things LOL
then into a pot with love juice :whistle: for 3 hours. again tender juice and wonderful. this time I put in three good sized chunks of apple wood and I had a light pink smoke ring and nice light smoky flavor. this one was thicker and was wonderful again :)
Neil had another late night so the last pic was it on the egg keeping warm with Carnivore sweet sauce cut with a little honey brown beer.
and I was not really planning on posting about it so not very good pics.. cell phone again.. but this is a pretty simple cook for anyone that has not done a brisket and is a bit hesitant to give one a try. pick one up and just do it! good meal and tasty leftovers.

    I missed the original posts with this you mind linking to it or elaborating on the "juice"? What went into the DO with the brisket for those last 3 hours? Definitely something I'd like to try.

    Mainegg, Cooks looks mighty good. I might try that method this weekend.
    I am interested in purchasing the froggmat, but wondering how long do they last...should purchase more than 1 froggmatt for ea egg?

    this one has been being used 2-3 time a week since I got it mid may. still just rinses off and a light scrub with a brush is all it needs to clean. not sure of the life time of then maybe someone else knows and will pipe up :)

    bottle of beer, fav spices, garlic, hot sauce. I think you can really wing it with this part. flavors that you like.

    I hope FLPoolman chimes in as I got this from him.. not sure if he got it from someone or just came up with it pouring chlorine into a pool... Neil says that does weird things to you LOL he might have just dreamed it up or seen it in a vision. we are lucky to have him :P but anyways I am sure I missed steps as I tend to be more of a just wing it cook LOL

    Julie, I noticed in your earlier post that you covered it 50% of the time while it was in the broth. Did you cover it this time as well?

    Looks great Julie glad you like it. As for the liquids you can use whatever you like, my favorites are beer. brown sugar, hot sauce and garlic. Grillmandan started this I just modified it with the spices. It really is a easy cook but I guess thats what you would expect from me :laugh: :whistle:
  • MaineggMainegg Posts: 7,787

    Julie, the brisket looks great :) ......but don't share that with Pat. I can never give Pat the satisfaction of knowing that he is a great cook. :evil:
