On a brisket (packer untrimmed) where do y'all place the internal temp probe? Last time I placed it into the tip (fatter end). I cooked the last brisket until 185 degrees internal temp and it was good but felt like the flat was a little dry.
Thanks for any and all help.

    Brisket "gives it up" at higher temps. Best to use a fork or the probe tip and see if it twists easily

  • Same thing happened to me on my first packer brisket. My brisket was trimmed. Stuck the thermo in thicker section  ( near the point).... al ittle dry on the flats. Pulled @ 190 F. and set in a cooler for 2 hrs. Still dryer than I like. Any comment is more than welcome.
