Brisket Help

So I promised to bring smoked brisket to a holiday party that is tonight. Due to circumstances beyond my control I wasnt able to get it on the Egg until 8:30 this morning. Its a 9.6 lb whole brisket.

I have the Egg at about 300 now trying to speed it up. Do I dare go higher? Any thoughts, tips on bringing this speed brisket in on time?

    what time is the party? 300 isnt to high, i know there are a lot of people that do high heat brisket. you can try this site out.
  • The Party is at 7:00. Thanks for the link.

    Let the brisket get to an internal of 160...wrap it in Hvy Duty broth or juice....put it back on at 300-325 until it sticks fork tender...probably about 2 hours after the juice and defat it...take leftover juice & brush on the sliced brisket for a great flavor & glazing effect....

    Will you have time to do burnt ends???

    At 300 I would add water to the drip pan from time to time. I find it makes a big difference at that temp.

    Since steam carries a lot more energy than dry air at the same temp. it will also help speed the cook up.
