Hello Pana.  Welcome.  I see this is your first post so when you get a chance please stop by Roll Call and introduce yourself so we can give you a proper Hello.  Now for your problem, we need more info:  smoker used, heat source, is 187 the internal meat temp or the smoking chamber temp?All info helps.  Keep Smokin!

    Briskets will "stall" and temp will stop going up or even go down like you described. Don't panic it will come back up. Patience is the key here. Show us some pics!
