Default ?? For big green eggsperts

So I am trying my first slow cook today on the BGE. How long do I cook a 6 lb brisket at 250 for??

Low and slow isn't about time. Its all about internal temp. Brisket is the most difficult meat to get right. I usually pull it somewhere around 195-205. Every hunk of meat is different

Your looking at 10 to 12 hours or an internal temp of 190F. Then I pull off and wrap in foil with a brisket sauce and cook for 2 more hours until I reach temp of 195F to 200F. You`ll need a temperature probe to insert into the meat. And you`ll also need plenty of beer. It`s going to be a long day.

U must use a digital thermometer that is left in the meat. Andy is on the money. I try for 197 degrees

Agreed. Also for brisket, it is important to wrap and let sit for an hour after pulling off the smoker. I smoked one yesterday and pulled it at around 190. My kids got me an iphone temp monitor for fathers day and I am not quite sure how accurate it is yet.

Actually it really doesn't make for a long day with the BGE. Once you get the temp set to 225 it stays there. You can go about yer bizness as usual until you are ready to check it in the evening.
