    Measure it in the flat. Around ~195* you should be able to probe it like its a piece of butter. Yum, enjoy!

    Thickest part of the flat... Probe needs to slide into the beast with no resistance. This could be at 188 like Centex's masterpiece, or it could be at 200-205 like most others. Depends on the meat. How does it feel?

    Still lots of resistance... Point is like butter but the flat seems still too tough

    As mentioned above, the key is the thickest part of the flat.  The point will run hotter due to higher fat content.  It will be fine riding along until the flat says "finished".  Enjoy the eats.

  • Patience is necessary here. Don't pull it until you have no resistance on the probe test
