A CyberQ wifi will be a perfect Xmas gift I see from my experience today. But that doesn't help me at the moment. I've tried three briskets over the last 2 months with mixed success.
This morning, I put a 5lbs brisket on the BGE with the plate setter on, water/drip pan and targeting 250 for a long slow cook. I started this morning at 5:45 and it's been on now for 3:30 mins now. It has already hit an internal temp of 183 at this rate I'll be at 195 pretty quick. Typically I thought it should take 10 hours or so. I'm in the process of backing down the heat to slow it down the cook for a longer time.
My grill grate temp is at 225, my BGE dome is at 250ish and my heat probe in the brisket is at 181 and I have guests coming at 6:00 tonight.
I'm open to any suggestions!
