    I have had a brisket on all morning, then at 4:30 it was at 170, I wrapped it and went to pick up my wife from work. We shot over to traget for a few mins, then home. When I walked into the door I heard the alarm, checket the temp, it was at 207. I pulled it wrapped it and placed it in the fridge.... Man I hope all that time prepairing, and smoking wasn't wasted... [​IMG]

    Some people smoke theres to 205 or so it should pull easy. Did you rest it at all when you pulled it out of the smoker?

    It should pull pretty easy not sure you could slice it tho may just fall apart. Save the juice De-fat it and add the juice back in to the pulled meat

    If it doesn't come out to your liking you can always chop it up and mix it with BBQ sauce.

    We'll hope I do not need to mix it in with sauce, I had other plans. It was to be served with roasted potaoes, corn de cob, and a fresh garden salad. I also used the marinade to make a suace. I reduced it, thickened it with a brown rue, and finnished off with fresh lemon tyme, and basil. We'll see maybe I'll get lucky..

    Just give up, it's ruined, you'll just have to make another one, and bring the ruined one to me to dispose of properly. [​IMG]

    The ring came out pretty okay considering it was smoked on my ECB electric....

    That is a mighty nice smoke ring. I don't get much if any smoke ring with my ECB electric and was thinking about chucking a charcoal briquette in my chip can for my next smoke.
