My first brisket, couple questions

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
So I started my 11 pound brisket at about noon. Everything is going good, it's at 160 right now after 6 hours. I'm curious if the last 40-50 degrees takes a really long time. I'm planning on letting it go through the night assuming it will need to. I'm using a MES 30, at 230 degrees. Hickory and cherry wood and spritzing with apple juice once an hour. I'll add photos in a bit!

:popcorn  Looking forward to your pic's.

 

Best luck with your smoke.  Did you wrap your brisket at around 165?  That will speed up the remainder of your smoke.

One eyed jack is right, keep in mind that each piece of meat is different and some will stall for hours and some won't. Using the Texas crutch method helps your meat power through the stall but will result in less bark. Post some pics soon!

All done! I ended up just letting creep its way up there, no foil. Pulled it out at 198.
