I am having trouble when I Smoked a brisket it was really dry, I smoked it at 200degrees for six hours to long?? What's the best way to get the BGE started, it usually takes me 45 min to get it going

    leaving out a lot of info. How are you measuring your temperature of the grill. How big was the cut of meat? was it a whole packer brisket or just a flat? 45 minutes is just about right to hit smoking temps. I use an electric starter for low and slow cooks

    You may want to try the search function here or google with BGE in the title as there are many recent posts about brisket.  Lots of worthwhile info-
    Louisville;  L & S BGEs, PBC, Lang 36; Burnin' wood in the neighbourhood. # 38 for the win.  Life is too short for light/lite beer.

    Do it the VERY EASY way. Have the butcher grind it into hamburger meat and make burgers. Doing it tonight. Best burgers ever is out of  brisket. Also much quicker cook :-O
