Brisket probe test. Unwrapping part?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Smoking a brisket right now, going to wrap it in BP at 165F

 

Do I unwrap at 190F and probe test then leave it unwrapped the whole time while I repeat the probe test? Or do people wrap it back up? seems like a pita if so

Ozsmoker , I personally don't wrap . I cook naked the entire time. However if you are going to wrap , the BP is a better choice to use.

 

As for re-wrapping after the tender test , well , if it's a PITA to you and you feel it's insignificant , leave it open ( the Bark will crust up for you again too).

unwrapped at 190, and temp wouldn't move, so i wrapped it back up and checked again closer to 200

 

brisket ended up being tender but dry... i want to be able to slice it and have juices pouring out

 

i think the problem was i removed way too much fat, especially most of the deckle. also, i am considering smoking fat side down next time

That's why I don't Trim...
