Ingredients

1 brisket flat, fat cap on, about 6 lbs
1 cup brisket rub
½ bag Jack Daniels wood chips, soaked overnight in water
Bardough House Slaw
10 country loaf rolls

Instructions

Coat the brisket on all sides with an even layer of rub. Let the meat to rest for 1 hour at room temperature or until the rub starts to turn pasty.

Set the EGG for indirect cooking with the convEGGtor at 225°F/107°C.

Place the brisket, fat side up, on the grill. After 8 hours check meat periodically. Poke the meat in a few places; the fat should separate under your finger. When the brisket reaches an internal temperature of 200°F/93°C, remove it from the EGG onto a rimmed baking sheet to rest for 30 minutes.

Cut the brisket in thin slices against the grain. Cut the rolls in half and butter on both sides. Add sliced brisket and slaw and enjoy!
