Doing a 12.87 pound brisket tonight injected with a little beef broth and garlic, mustard coating then dusted with dizzy dust ,cow lick and a heavy coat red eye express grid temp 270 some apple, hickory and cherry chunks and chips . Once that comes off tomorrow morning going to put on a pork butt cooked to about 165/170 for slicing never tried this one hoping its better than doing a loin .

  • yeah buddy. looks good. If you can get your hadns on some oak, give thta a rip. Something about oak and beef that is money (for me anyway). You are holding the torch hight this weekend. I had chicken parm tonight and I'm going to a tailgate/football game tomorrow so no eggin' for me until Sunday. Should be plenty of good Q at the tailgate though. It's gonna be a texas style throwdown. I'll send pics.

    how long do you plan on getting smoke from the chunks and chips?  I did my first brisket last weekend and didn't get a smoke ring even though I thought I had smoke on it for 3-4 hrs (by hours 2.5 I was sleeping)

    when i loaded the egg i built it up with chips and chunks in the center so as the fire burns down its hitting wood all the time also spread some chips outwards to so they fall into the center as it burns .the colder the meat the better also since from what i heard the smoke ring only develops till about 140 internal but the smoke sticks to the outside during the entire cook also read that the smoke ring is pretty but not a indication of how much smoke the meat took on or has could have read that wrong tho . Cen-Tex will correct any wrong statements i made i hope or someone that has done a lot more than me

    we had the smoke ring chat earlier this week. I never get them...ever. I've tried all the tricks but it is extremely rare that I get one on the egg. Don't worry, that does not mean you are not getting smoke though

    +1 on oak and beef.  my favorite is a few chunks during the roast period of a big ol' ribeye with a good cabernet that is really oaky in taste, the 2 compliment each other in an amazing fashion.  oak on brisket is superb, it was always my favorite at the q joints that used it when i lived in texas.

    Brisket is done looks and smells great its been FTC for a little while and the pork butt is on now taking that to about 165/175 to slice it .rubbed with red eye express and blues hog rub no oak to add so i went with apple and maple sugar wood . since am doing the pork to slice i decided to try fat side up on the v-rack

    @bigphil-Congrats on one extended cook!!  Sounds like quite the successful journey. Doubt my liver could handle the duration but would that I had the chance.  What size BGE and any lump reload required?

    @lousubcap did it all on my LBGE filled it into the fire ring leaving just enough gap so the PS didn't hit the lump doing it that way i never had to reload lump was RO . i lit the egg at 7pm last night and just now at 5pm tonight shutting it down i have more than enough lump left to cook a full breakfast tomorrow morning (giving the XL the morning off) and a few smaller cooks during the week . right now thats 22 hours of burn time with a grid temp of 270 and dome temp right around 300 gotta love the egg .the picture shows whats left in the fire box

    Thanks for the info-I have run the LBGE that long on one load.  Upon further review-smart move to remove the butt at 175-greatly reduces cook time and lump consumption.  Geez-the encore for Sunday :)>-
