Brisket question

I have done one before and it came out great. I have one on the Egg now since last night at 9:30 @ 230-260 throughout the night.

Right now the point (fatty end) is 199-205 and tender while the flat side is 170 and tough.

Does his sound right? I do not want to ruin the other end.

Done temp shoul be 190-195ish correct?

    Stop looking at temp. Take it off when you have the texture you are looking for. I'd save the point before the flat.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    So let it go until the flat is soft?

    Nope. The flat sometimes won't get right. Take it off when the point is ready.

  • If you like the tenderness of the point take it off. If the flat is still not tender wrap in foil with a little beef broth and keep in egg until tender. Forget temp on the flat. The flat is done when you insert a small fork in the side and rotate it easily. Good luck
    Everyday is Saturday and tomorrow is always Sunday.

    Your call but most "declare victory" when you can probe the thickest part of the flat with no resistance in or out and that's somewhere in the 195-205+*F temp range.  Point will be above 210*F  then as it has much more fat.  Enjoy the journey.

    Brisket done. Butter. Can't wait to eat some later. Now onto stuffed mushrooms and pigshots. Guests arrive at 1.
