Bobby Flay Cooks A Brisket on the Egg

I'm sure many of you saw Bobby Flay's new show yesterday where he cooked a large brisket @ 225° for only 8 hours (four out and four in foil) to an internal temperature of 185°. It looked great afterward but he sure doesn't want to call the Egg a "Big Green Egg" does he?

And the way he dropped the dome lid is going to crack it one of these days when the gasket gets broke in.

If he's the pro here, I've got lots to learn on the Egg.

    The way he closes/slams the Dome on the EGG is like slapping your wife's face. You just don't do it. We all know better.

    I saw him drop that lid and was sure he was going to break it. -RP

    Bobby Flay is an idiot when it comes to everything BBQ. He's also a hypocrite because he railed on a contestant last night in that silly Next Food Network Loser contest for cooking brisket in 2 hours. He said "So it's only 13 hours underdone?!" I was really hoping they would bring Myron Mixon in from the wings right then and have him say it was a throwdown on brisket and Bobby had 4 hours to cook...go!

    Looked like lump to me, and very large pieces. -RP

    He definitely didn't use the "Egg" word. Even my wife screamed when he slammed the lid down one time.

    Results looked pretty good though. :whistle:

    Mixon has forgotten more about cooking a brisket that that Brooklyn bozo will ever know.

    I also had to wonder why he was so strong on soaking the wood chips "up to 24 hours"?
    Does he know anything about cooking outside of a kitchen?
