Corned Beef help

I have two 4lb corned beef briskets.  I put on at 12:30 @ 275 indirect.  Checked at 3:30 and had an internal of 165* so I foil wrapped, toweled and put in a cooler for 1.5 hrs.  The taste seems pretty tough. 

Thoughts?

  • So just put back on?  Foiled or unfoiled?  I plan on using it all to make hash.

    I'd put it on foiled if you want it done faster.  Might be salty - corned beef is usually boiled, so taste before you add any salt to the hash.

    You're looking for it to be tender - if you stab it with a thermometer probe it should go in like buttah.  Since that brisket was cured, it doesn't take as much heat as an uncured chunk of brisket which usually gets tender around 190-210.  So it might be done before 190.

    Man, corned beef is meant to be boiled. It's supposed to season the cabbage and potatoes.You should have rinsed them in about ten changes of water for pastrami.

  • Well, I am back.  The corned beef did get LOTS more tender.  Thanks to all for the advice.  I was need to remember that this is more like a regular brisket and not a prime rib.  I seem to want to undercook stuff on the egg.  Sorry but no pics.  Chopped the corned beef, baked 10 lbs of potatoes on the egg and diced.  Onion, garlic, green, red and yellow peppers with 3 sticks of melted butter.  All sitting overnight in the refrigerator.  Will serve in the am along with scrambled eggs and biscuits.  Happy St Patricks Day to all.
