Finishing temp questions.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
So I notice around here it says a lot that things have finished temperatures, that once they reach that tempurature they're done? So does that mean that once the meat reaches said temperature that I should pull it at that point or what?

Yep, that pretty much sums it up, anymore time and in many cases you have reached the optimum amount of time for that hunk of meat wink.gif

Re: Finishing temp questions.

Can anyone tell me the finishing temp for a fattie? I found the smoker temp and a time of 3 hrs. but was curious about the internal temp. Have been drooling over my keyboard and am threatening to make a store run wink.gif . Think I'll try the JD hot and sage. Thanks in advance :D ! Daun

Re: Finishing temp questions.

I usually just let it go for 3 hours and it is done, but I think 165 is the "safe" temp for a fatty.

Zardnok, Thanks for the guideline. If I don't get up early, we might be having fatties and biscuits for brunch :lol: ! Daun
