Uhhh...

So I grabbed a 12 lb packer from le butcher and trimmed the big guy to just over 10 lbs. I Cowlicked it and put it on at 2300 at 248 grid.

This morning, I woke to the Maverick alarming that the meat was 190(probe test time) at 0650(grid 260). The meat wasn't quite buttery enough so I land o' lakes'd it for another hour. At 0800, I pulled this meteorite off with a point at 205 and flat at 196-198. Buttery all around.

It sure smells purdy... This was supposed to be dinner(pull off around noon) but will instead be lunch. It's been FTC'ing for just over 3 hours now. We will see...

    They are such unique monsters you could do the next one and it could take 50%more time. Looks like you got a solid win there this time.

    Mmmmmmm....sure looks good!   The brisket gods have shined their light on you, and want you to enjoy it sooner.  For dinner you can have a @Hennapple Steak Sandwich.  


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    What is your temp? I have no idea how mine went so fast at 250–260 the whole cook. Perhaps tree gnomes messed with my vent settings while I slept.

    whaaaaaat????? you don't kow your exact temp down the 1/16th of a degree? However will you not completely ruin your food. Impossible. Some would even call it laughable. I'm telling meat head.

    Nice, really nice - by your time schedule, this could have happened over the day. Basically on for 9 hours, FTC for two or three. Now I get the title - DUH....
    What did you do with the leftovers?

    I foiled it and bumped the temp to finish and drank too much. It was fall apart and only got about ten good slices. The guests raved. Used oak for the first time and liked it. I think I need a digital dome thermo.
