quick brikset question

The brisket is in the stall which is fine.
My question is that the flat of the brisket is reading 187  and the point is 160.
Should I be concerned ?

also GO CANADA !!!!


  • If you end up separating the point, throw some beef stock in with the flat and whatever you get off the board.

    It seems that is too late for the point to catch up. Is the point toward the back?

    Different but given brisket...Usually see the point running hotter than the flat due to higher fat content.  That's why the point rides to the finish-line with the flat and no worries about its temp.  You may want to check thermo position in the point.  FWIW-

  • I'd cook the flat to 200 and if the point is still behind more than 10 degrees, I'd seperate, FTC the flat, and put the point back on until it hits 200. If the point is around 190 when the flat is done I'd FTC the whole thing and I bet you'd be good after about an hour.
