    Working really well actually. Will hold 225 - 240 for hours.

    Question if anyone is watching. I put this on at 0830. Is it possible to have it ready to eat by 6 by foiling after about 6 hours?

    At 230 I plan on putting it into the drip pan with the remainder of my injection (SPOG with two cups of beef broth and a 1/4 cup Worcestershire) and bringing the IT to 190.
  6. hot and fast is the way to go for what youre trying to achieve here.

    I think I am going I put the meat thermometer in at 130 and foil it at the same time and hope it hits 190 IT by 5!

    Pulled at 190 and into the cooler for 2 hours. Hope my Maverick isn't lying to me!
  13. how did it feel at 190? did u try and probe it any to check for tenderness?

    It felt kind if loose if that makes sense and a tooth pick slid in no problem. I have to caulk this up to beginners luck cause it turned out fantastic!! Tender, moist, and absolutely delicious!! The whole family loved it! We had about 1lb left of the 8.5lb brisket!!

    I was a little concerned since the IT topped out at 195 in the cooler but it didnt seem to matter. Thanks it watching!!

    I watched Aaron franklins videos and learned a lot!

    Thanks for the kind words Disco but I still call it beginners luck!

    Once is luck
    Twice is chance

    Sorry but I agree with Ralph Waldo Emerson:
