This Brisket was cooked on March 4, 2011 on my BGE.

It was an 11 lb whole brisket. I generally buy a whole brisket as the flat only dries out sometimes. Whole briskets are usually +10lbs. flats are like 6lbs or less...



These are the basic Steps that I followed:

Setup Egg for indirect. I like to use a rectangular drip pan and put foil out to keep direct heat off of the egg.


1)  Rub - Used Dizzy Pig Cow Lick this time. Sprayed with some canola oil to keep from falling off. I let it set in the fridge for a few hours.

2)  Cook to 165-175F at 230F w/handful of hickory wood chips.

3)  Double wrap in foil and add 2oz stock mixed w/Worsteshire.

3)  Cook to 195F.

4)  Wrap in towels and put in cooler.

5)  Leave for at least one hour.

6)  Savor your efffort

7)  Slice against the grain!

8)  Enjoy...














So Good!!!







 

 

 

 




It is important (in my opinion) to avoid direct heat on the brisket. So when using a whole brisket it may go over the drip pan. Ensure you put foil on the edges to reflect direct heat....

 

 

 

 

 

I use a rectangular drip pan to cover as much of the brisket as I can and avoid direct heat. I got this one from Ceramic Grill Store (see my favorite links page).

 

 

 

 

 

I usually put these 5/8" nuts on my indirect heat ceramic (here a old pizza stone) and put my drip pan on that. I think it keeps the grease from burning but I may be wrong....

 

 

 

 

 

I put a bit of extra lump in this one. I had so much leftover after my 13/14 hr cook.. I did a couple more normal cooks with the remaining lump.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is a pic of a cook I did a few years ago showing all the steps at one time....Hope it helps..
