Brisket and souvee help

Got a fancy cooker for christmas... plan on cooking for 12 -14 hrs in the contraption this evening before I place on the egg tomorrow to try and get the bark.

Suggestions on temp?


  • Get the Anova or Joule app. You can search different meals you’ll be preparing and recipes will include time and temps. Many of them are very scalable.

    I would suggest 155°F for at least 24 hours.  Not sure what to do for only a 12 hour bath.

    In cooking, often we implement steps for which we have no explanations other than ‘that’s what everybody else does’ or ‘that’s what I have been told.’  Dare to think for yourself.

    I agree...12-14h seems like way short for a sous vide cooking time for beef that needs slow cooking.  145F for 2 days might be interesting.  Of course, as soon as I said that, I thought "Kenji probably has a page on this":
  • FWIW - I have done two sous vide cooks of prime brisket. Both were @155F.

    One was for 30 hours the other was for 33 hours. I finished them on my egg. I used liquid apple smoke.

    While they were both good (juicy and tender) they were more roast like then brisket like.

    I get much better results on my egg.

    I had planned on finishing the brisket on the egg. Do yall do this with direct or indirect cooking

    I throw mine in an ice bath (right out of the SV still in the bag) until super cold then throw a little more rub on and smoke indirect until the bark sets.
