Slow cooked my first brisket during shelter in place.

Why did I wait so long! Put it on 11:30 pm. Checked at three and five a.m. Wrapped it at 165 (8:30). Done by 10. Holy smoke! The best thing I've eaten in a long time.

    Looks like you nailed it! Good eats for sure. Kid looks pretty exited as well.

    First up welcome aboard and enjoy the journey.  Above all, have fun.  That is nailing it right out of the gate.  Congrats.  Most fun cook you can have on the BGE or any other rig for that matter.  
    I would take that any time.

    LOVE the handle.   Who doesn’t like taco meat?

    Nicely done. Leftover brisket makes for great taco meat.

    Great cook. Great post. Welcome aboard. And be aware that they might not all turn out this good.
