250* brisket went on at 7 am mountain time.  Currently it is 1:22 pm. I am reading 200* internal.  Six hours?  Thermo probe goes in like a hot knife into butter.

    Make sure you  are checking in the thickest part of the flat...If so and it's tender then congrats-BTW cooking packer or flat and what size as all those factor into the cow and the finish-line.  FWIW-

    I have it in towels in the cooler until the Mrs is done working....two more hours.  I want to eat my arm off.

    Yup, that's doable, especially if you were only off 15 degrees on your thermo.

    Listen to Louis!

    Packer/flat??  Don't remember what the sticker said.  How can you tell the diff just looking at them?

    Well-the brisket cook is a great ride-FWIW I have many more singles than triples or home-runs but always go again.  Below are some great references when you get the time-
