First Brisket

dgoldbdgoldb Posts: 11
I'm cooking my first brisket--a 5 pounder from Costco. A couple of questions--1. My Maverick remote is reading a different temp that the one on the egg. Which one do I go with (trying to cook at 225). 2. After wrapping in tin foil, why are you supposed to put it in a cooler? and 3. Is it best to cook the brisket for a while wrapped in tin foil with some liquid--and what is the best liquid? 4. At what internal temp would I wrap it and put it back  on the egg?   Thanks for any help


  • It's common for there to be a difference in the dome temp and the temp at the grid. When are you planning on eating? 225 is a 10 hour cook for a 5 lb brisket.

    All the other questions you have will fall into place once I know that.

    I'm not a big foil guy but many great Briskets have been foiled at some point
