ok i put my brisket on at 3:45pm.... and at 9:25pm the alarm was going off at 170 degrees ps it's only 7lbs.. thats only about 5 1/2 cooking time .. at 1.5 hours per lbs i should be looking at the half way point... my temp has been at 185 - 210 degrees pretty consistantly
all this being said iguess i am just wondering is it ready or should i watch the temp and let it keep on, keeping on..
After about 20 min the temp started to drop .. all the way to 160* then over the next 5 hours rose to 172* pulled it and here she is ,, (sorry i've eaten bout half.)
this is my 5th one .. 2,3,and 4 were done at the cabin feeding family .. funny no one complained.. but i think this is the best of each attempt...


ps thanks for all the good help....
Some times that happens. Looks like it turned out pretty good. You just gotta keep the faith that it's all good - AND it's done when it's done. Next time you're unsure of the temp try checking another spot to make sure.
