    I don't see anything wrong wiht your plan. What temp do you expect to pull it and and are you going to foil near the end at all?

    We tried to find a packer brisket today but could only find points and flats. Grrrrr.

    Are you using a Large or XL Egg? I had a 13 lb one that barely fit my Large (but it was a LONG 13 lb one).

    Best of luck, seems like you have a good plan.

    Don't go too much longer than 14hrs or you'll have a thick bark. Sometimes it does take a long time, but I've never had one take longer than 15hrs.

    Just cook it till it gets between 190-205F degrees internal. If it comes off early, wrap it in foil and plastic then put in a cooler till it's time to serve it.

    I went to my local butcher and told em what i wanted they cut it fresh today for me. Using a Large BGE was a very tight fit....but got it on !!! Using placesetter with drip pan (beer/water/rub drippings) and brisket on a rack just above the drip pan......

    What do ya's think about the BBQ Guru? I think it would come in handy, my temp spiked up too 275, caught it in time bringin it back down!!Have daisy wheel and bottom vent closed up sliver at bottom vent . Grrrr Time for a new gasket !
  • I have 2, one for each large egg. I bought one for my boss for a commercial pit and he loves it as well. Made major points for that one. Just a nano but it does a great job. If I buy another I think I will go with the nono. Simple but effective.

    I was thinking it would be tight if you had a Large, glad it fit in! Hope it turns out great!
