Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Brisket question

I put on a brisket this morning about 6am. About 115 my wife says the flat is about 200. I'm in a golf tournament so I tell her to pull and wrap in towel till I got home. It seemed a little quick to me. It sat for about an hour, point is very tender. Flat feels a little tough still. I decided to put it back on at 225 for awhile. Once I got it back on and probe back in it was at 150 range. I've already cut off the point and burnt ends cut and ready to go back on smoker.

My question is will cooking the flat make it more tender? Should I cook it back up to 200? It was probably a 9-10 pounds after trimming and it cooked for only bout 7 hours at about 270. (I like cooking it a little hotter than 225)
