Brisket Question

danv23danv23 Posts: 629
My Brisket (which got done at 10am EST) has just been taken out of the cooler (FTC) still in the foil (used lots) which was still hot to the touch. I put it in the oven at 170.

My question is, what time do i take it out of the oven if I want to slice it at 6:30?  Do I take the foil off at some point before slicing?  PLease help, and be descriptive as possible! Thanks!!!!!!

The Dude: Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

    i agree. Gotta work with what I got. Should i let it rest sitting in the foil in the juices (i hope) with the foil torn open for like 30 min before slicing?

    I cooked on my XL, it was 18lbs, guru attached to the dome probe, 250 deg. started at 5pm, figured an hor to an hour 15 per pound. And yes, its calibrated.

    I would unwrap the food gift at around 6:20 PM (EDT) based on a temp fo 170*F.  Just be ready to consume once you slice against the grain.  FWIW-YMMV

    10-4.. if it fails i'll sauce it up. used can-o-beef broth in the foil which i preheated. Seemed good and wet when it went in the foil. i am currently praying to the beast gods.
