I am assuming I'm not gonna be able to fit both brisket flats on my Large Egg so if I use my 2nd grate with the bricks holding up the 2nd grate would that be an okay set up for the Brisket?  

Thanks!

    Going indirect I would assume (hate that word!) but your set-up will work just fine-I would put the larger one on top as the closer to the dome the higher the temp-with indirect cooks, the dome thermo (calibrate it) will initially read around 20-40*F higher than the grid-but the longer the dome is shut the closer the temps.  And each will finish at its own pace-"it is done when it is done" is never more true than wrestling with a flat.  Some where in the 190-205*F range usually but the best test is to probe the thickest part of the flat-no resistance in or out-you are there!  Enjoy the journey and BTW-as you go through the stall-patience is the watch-word.

  • Thanks Lou....I appreciate your help!  I know indirect always sounds so weird with the Egg but that's the phrase we all use :)
