So here she is... Put it on at about 5:30, let the Q begin.
Simple season / rub 1 part each Kosher Salt, Coarse Pepper, Garlic Powder...
Question. 4 hours in the smoker, probe reads 166. Is is really possible for this to be that far in just 4 hours? I've been running the pit in the 240 to 275 range... Party is at 6:30 tomorrow night, I was worried about it getting done in time, now I'm worried it'll get done to early and dry out.
Looking good.. looks like you had a long night.. can't want to see the finished smoke.
And yes its ok for your brisket to get to 165 that fast.. your pit may also be running hotter then you think?
If it gets done early which it will for a 6pm party.. wrap in foil and then towels and place in a cooler to keep warm.
Dwolfpak , nice Brisky , looked as if it were a 'limber' one that would bend in half easily . May have had a bit less fat or was distributed well , the stall will tell ( if no stall , a lucky Brisky )
Those Butts you have are awesome . you'll be there a while with them... are you going to foil or Au-natural At 240* to 275*F , you should get a good Bark and the color will be nice...
Keep the smoke blue and thin and as always . . .
Here's the wrap.... About 4 am I pulled it out just shy of 180, wrapped it an set it in the oven set at 200. As mentioned above, I'm hoping this will bring it up slowly and hold around 195ish. I'll let y'all know how it comes out.
I went to bed at 6:30 am, checked the temp, and it was holding at 197... So for so good.
