Thirdeye's Brisket School

I'm about to do my second brisket since owning my Egg. I've been reviewing the posts and related links. There's a lot of very good stuff out there. The one that is by far the most comprehensive (that I've found) is this one from Thirdeye:

If you're relatively new to the brisket world like I am, this looks to be an excellent guide.

    A lot of us here are beholden to thirdeye for good brisket advice. Allow me to second your recommendation.
    Me too, a big thanks to thirdeye, the "bbq guy", as I have seen marked on some of the meat packages from his butcher.

    Let us know how your cook turns out.

  • GG - will do. I finally have that whole CyberQII configuration figured out so I'm looking forward to finally doing the cook.
  • I just served a brisket flat that I cooked per Carwash Mike's recommendation. It was head and shoulders above what I've done before, but still a little chewy. The flavor was, however, excellent.

    I might try one of Thirdeye's methods next time to see if I can get it a little more tender.
  • Good news indeed Dan. You will have fun using the computer with the cook.

    Thanks Dan!
  • Not to take away from thirdeye, I read it atleast a dozen times before my 1st brisket on the 23rd, but we can't leave Bubba-Tim out of the conversation when you mention brisket ramblings. The combination of the 2 and you can't get any better!
