Put a packer in the MES at around 5 am Hit a stall at 156. Here's the oops

 Sitting here in my puter chair and fell asleep. Woke up and brisket is at 190 .Didn't make the foil mark.of 170. Has anyone ever cooked one w/o doing the foiling stage?

 It's at 192 and not real tender . Anything i can do to salvage this ???

I guess you could foil it now Eman, but I think a lot of people do without the foil and have good results.

Let us know what ya do and how it comes out.

I have done a few without foil but I prefer foil as the ones without seem dry to me. If you slicing maybe just serve with aujus or gravy. If your gonna pull/chop it then foil now and go to 208-210 it should help some

Pulled from the smoker at 200*.

Wrapped in foil and into the chest.

 This was my first time to do things differently Than the norm.

 No spraying the meat No opening the smoker except to insert the probes in the butts and brisket.

 Then again to remove the ribs when they were done.

Butts are still in the smoker got another hour or so to go.

Sorry to hear about that - I rarely foil brisket until it hits 200 - then it's into the foil and into the chest for a couple of hours.

Hey ellie long time!

 I did the 1.5 hr in the ice chest after i pulled off the smoker at 200. Just wasn't as tender as i would expect. .

 Buts are in the chest and i'll just put them in the fridge tonight and pull tomorrow. the burnt ends will be off the smoker about 9:30  or so.
