Brisket on Large BGE

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hello folks.  How much Charcoal do you initially put in a Large BGE for a Brisket and how do you maintain a 275 degrees temperatures for several hours.  Do you add charcoal in between? I know the basics but I seem to have struggled with cooking a 9 lbs brisket on BGE.  Puzzled as to how much charcoal to start off with.  Do I start with little so that it is easier to achieve low temperatures of say 275 degrees.  Then add a little more every couple of hours.  Just not sure.  Any guidance would be highly appreciated.  Thank you.

Minion Method would be my choice. The BGE is likely capable of 12hr burn time without any fuss. Here's a search:
