  • I don't go by recommended times that people post, I have been burned by it as well.  I just started cooking much (much) earlier with the assumption that I can always FTC and it works out great for me.  I now know my egg so I can better guestimate wh…
  • Wolfie51sb said: My opinion is if your goal is to put something on the BGE knowing it will be done in exactly x hours, then you're correct, you should not cook brisket. It sounds by the tone of your posts that you've already resigned yourself t…
  • travisstrick said: Never buy a brisket under 10lbs. You are wasting your time otherwise.  Go go to H-E-B and get a fat packer. Cook it between 200 and 400 until its soft. It's really that easy.  I guess I'm gonna have to do that, even t…
  • MaC122 said: I suck at the flat. The point, however, comes out much better. The flat is always dry no matter what time, temp, or probing. Ill keep on trying, but I am getting better at it. I'm gonna start spraying it with cider vinegar as I hea…

  • Photo Egg said: Take some time and read through some of the posts on this forum. You will see amazing foods off all kinds being made. If your food is not coming out the way you like, sorry, but it's not the fault of the Egg. The Egg is only a c…
  • ColtsFan said: For the record, I've tried 4-5 briskets. They're mediocre at best, but each one is a bit better than the last. But I've never had bad chili made from my briskets..... Glass half full approach  I live in Austin so if I can'…
  • yljkt said: So you bought the BBQ guru 2 years ago and are still fighting with brisket?  We've had the thing for at least two years and my husband never installed it. I got sick of seeing $250 sitting in a closet so I told him he either …
  • I'm kind of in a dilemma in that case, then......I don't want to keep wasting money by getting meat that we aren't doing right, but I can't learn to do it right if we don't spend (and risk wasting) the money. I might just end up selling the Egg and …
  • Oh my that looks great! Will definitely try it!!
  • Beautiful.  I wouldn't need a tv with a back porch like that!   You do see his TV out there, right?! LOL We even had to have electric roll-down shades installed on the outside of the patio so he could see it, since the yard is west-facing. Spoiled!
  • Here's my beloved Lynx with the cover off. (I don't know why it's sideways on here!)
  • Very NIce ! =D> (It oughta be legal to cause physical harm to contractors who perform as yours did!)   He had become a dear friend after all the many jobs he had done for us, and 35+ referrals we gave him. He had offered to build this …
  • I don't know where the rest of my response was supposed to say, believe me she got her share and thanks for the compliments everyone! :-)
  • bud812 said: Welcome. Nice lookin pie. Now give poor puppy a bite. Believe me, she got her share!!!
  • Dillonjm said: Good luck @sbunker ! I  just did my first brisket and it came out great. I used a collection of advice from this site and it turned out very tender and flavorful. What exactly did you do with the brisket? My husband an…
  • Thanks, everyone! Our outdoor kitchen is finally FINISHED and I did end up putting the Egg on its feet, even though it is resting on a solid slab of 4" concrete enclosed by concrete and stone. I figured a bit of air below to breathe couldn't be a ba…
  • Good tip of using feet as a spacer! And there's nothing's built of solid cinder blocks covered with flagstone, concrete Egg-pad and concrete countertops. Without the feet it just looks so much neater.
  • Thank you! That's what I was hoping to hear!
  • What about using a pizza stone designed for an outdoor grill? I just bought one and was wondering if it would work on my new BGE, so I didn't have to go buy another right now.
  • Thank you, everyone! I'm really getting excited about this!
