    145* but it really depends on the cut for quality. You don't want to do a picnic or shoulder that low because of the grease

  • Correct LS (as usual) 

    You can do the lean muscles (tenderloin, chops etc) with a little pink. I always do. The roast cuts are safe at those temps, but just like if you cooked a brisket to 145, it will be shoe leather. So for safety, you are fine at 140-145. For texture, you need to follow technique for that specific cut

    Well sorta, unfortunately I can't find a brisket in The GWN to save my life. I can get Montreal smoked meat though

    I'm not in to Euro smoked meats (I know you are technically in North America but I have to classify you as Euro because of your socialist leanings).
