    <p />Finished! Wanted to break it in right! First Smoke Was A Sixteen Hour Double Smoked Brisket!

  • Smoke-N-Smirk!,
    Mighty fine looking table! Thanks for showing the process of making it. I just have one question. What is a double smoked brisket?[p]Matt.

  • Smoke-N-Smirk!,,[p]Wow! That is beautiful! You have almost inspired me to get up off of my pork-fed rear and build something myself. In hindsight, is there anything that you would have done differently?

    Smoke-N-Smirk!,,[p]You win, hands down. Nicest lookin table to date IMHO. I love the pictures in progress. Very cool. The green handles are a nice touch. Sure hope the elements treat her good.[p]Mick

  • Qbabe's Husband,
    Yes, I Wanted to use Euro type hinges on the doors. But well, I simply messed up and did not plan for the required off-set. So I had to use the hinges you see on the pictures.

  • South O,
    Double smoked brisket? Well it's something I found on the internet. Covered with Coke overnight, Removed & used favorite rub, Smoked @ 180 for 8 hours, Removed from egg, Wrapped in foil and put in cooler with towels and let it continue to cook until room temp. Now you can freeze it or place in fridge. The day of final cook smoke it for around 8 hours @180. This makes the brisket finish time easier to plan around a planed dinner time.

    Smoke-N-Smirk!,[p]It's a beautiful thing..but can we see some pictures? [p]HOWL
  • Smoke-N-Smirk!,
    very nice table and don't take this wrong but I'd get Mr Egg up on those green feet pronto! I've cracked two 1.5" cement stepping stones when resting my large directly on them. Your tiles are pretty, but won't stand a chance. The bottom gets increditably hot!

  • kat,
    I've had multiple warnings and have done just that. Thanks for the advice.

  • Smoke-N-Smirk!,
    smoking at 180? Yikes, that seems a bit low for me. Perhaps I'll give it try and if'n it don't kill me I might just post about it.[p]Matt.

  • South O,
    I hear ya! It's something to keep in mind. Actually since I went to the trivit. I can't keep it much below 200 without snufing it. The trivit is a little too efficient.

    Most excellent looking house for your egg. You are, as you should be, very proud of your work! Wish I were as talented or creative.
