Pulled out first smoke: What to do next

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello smokers!

I just pulled out three slabs of brisket from my new MES30 after 12 hours at 250 degrees and with IT at 189. I wrapped them in foil to cool. I'm not sure if tender enough. One felt tender with the "fork test". I'm not sure about the other two. Attached are pictures.

 

I am thinking of putting them wrapped in foil in a standard oven for a couple more hours since I don't need them until much later. Should I do it?

They are most likely tuff use a tooth pick it works better. Wrap in foil then a towel and put them in a cooler.

Myself, never had one done before 205. Do you have a reliable therm?

Do they jiggle like jello? If not, there're not done.

189° IT is a little early for most Briskets. Hope you were able to get it to a higher temp & Tender.

 

For next time, check here for things that can be done in an MES:
