    Smoked Beef Brisket

    Today I am prepping a wonderful beef brisket; tomorrow it shall be bathed for several hours in low temperature; sweet, sweet mesquite smoke; on the Big Green Egg:



    I like the brisket to rest in the 'fridge for at least 24 hours; to get the dry rub into the meat. Here it is; 9 pounds of succulent chest of cow; rubbed initially with mustard; then rubbed down with bodacious amounts of white sugar, brown sugar, cumin, black pepper, cayenne and kosher salt.

    The mustard won't be detectable when the brisket is finished. It's just used as to help the spices adhere to the brisket.



    All wrapped up and ready for the refrigerator:



    Well, the brisket is.... ON THE BIG GREEN EGG. Am using lump charcoal (hardwood) for the cook, and several large pieces of mesquite. Also have a pan under it filled with water.

    We'll be smoking this puppy at about 280 degree's... nice moist heat. Will take about 7-9 hours:

    This is what the brisket will start to look like after about 4 hours on the grill. Make sure you keep water in the pan below it. Smoke at 280 degree Fahrenheit



    After Brisket obtains an internal temperature of 195 degree's Fahrenheit (in the thickest part of the meat); remove from smoker and wrap loosely in aluminum for for a minimum of 30 minutes; allowing the meat to rest and the juices to lock into the meat.

    Then unwrap and slice against the grain. Thin slices are better:





    Enjoy!

    Most excellent, sir! Would you say that the big green egg is worth the money?

    Absolutely.

    Yes it is worth the money. I have been grilling/BBQ'ing/smoking for decades; and I can absolutely guarantee you that the Big Green Egg outclasses any other type of charcoal and/or gas grill. I have used them all. The Big Green Egg is the gold standard. I will use nothing else.
