First brisket on new BGE

First off, wish I could post picture from my iPhone!

Went to the local butcher that does my County Fair animals. Found a beautiful 12lb brisket wish some nice marbling.
Put some on a nice rub overnight and just got it on the grill. Low and slow! Thinking about 18hrs, give or take!

We will see! Can't wait!

Nice science experiment with a peace of meat that was more than the kiddos allowance combined (maybe I'm a cheap scape)!


  • 12 lbs is a big brisket, lets see some pics.

    About 16 hrs, foil wrapped at 190deg into cooler for 2hrs! Kids say it is the best meat they have ever had! Love it!

    Thanks for the photobucket info! Great rub I always use and yellow mustard. Slow and steady overnight about 240 dropping to 215 and when I woke got it back up to about 235. Stalled for a few hours at 170 and then went right to 190 and off it came. I have my Stoker ordered and can't wait to use it next time for a long smoke!

    Beginners luck!

    It looks great. I will be doing my first brisket this Sunday!
  • I am hooked on my new BGE!

    First week with the BGE.....chops, pork butt and brisket. Week isn't over yet!
  • Looks great.  I've had my egg since just before Christmas, I've cooked just about everything.  My Maverick 732 will be here Thursday, Friday night the brisket goes on about 10:00.  Looking forward to it.


    Johnson, Navin R... Sounds like a typical bastard.

    I am glad it came out good for you, I"ve never used a stoker, I just use my meat thermometer. I cook at 250deg and go for it. after 3yrs. still going strong.

    I bought that same meat thermometer from Walmart the first day I got my Egg. I still use it to this days on some cooks and it keeps on trucking.

    I still use it as a backup temp.....just in case.
    I use a stoker for most long cooks and it's there just in case!
