First off, thank you to all the advice I got from all on here for my first overnight and first Packer Trim Brisket cook! The results....well the results were outstanding! I placed the monster Brisket in my LBGE at 5:30PM Friday night with the intent on eating at 6PM Saturday evening. Well Saturday morning we had the annual community wide yardsale and everyone was asking about my egg and commented on the smell coming from it. I also let a few very serious "customers" take a peak and I beleve that I solde at least 3 BGE's from my yardsale alone lol. Anyway, my neighbors were amazed in the flavor of the brisket as well as the efficiency of the egg as I did not add charcoal at any point during the 22 hour cook = AMAZING!! Here are the results!

After 22 hours in the LBGE!!

    Way to go on your brisket cook. You are truly planting a seed if no one buys. Just think if folks in your neighborhood buys an egg you all can have your own eggfest. ;)

    I bought that Brisket at a local Pricecutter Plus here in Springfield,MO. The lil lady at the checkout line that rang me up said..."what are you gona do with that" I simply said with a grin..."im gona slow smoke that on my egg for 20+ hours to feed my neighborhood" she looked at me like I was crazy, nodded and said "OK" lol
