Brisket Question

Morning ya'll,

My post Independence day brisket seems to be stuck at 189degrees, I was going to pull it off at 195.

Also this 13lb'er has only cooked for 16hrs & 45 min. I expected it to take much longer.

Should I give her more time or just pull that sucka off now?

Thanks fellow eggers. Hope ya'll nursin' those hangovers with a little hair of the dog.

Saludos de Austin Tejas,

    Patience is a virtue that is REQUIRED for low and slow cooking..

    Be Patient...

    Yes but me so hungy! Kidding aside, you think I should pull at 195 or even 200? WWCWD? (What would Celtic Wolf do?)

    Saludos, Amaury

    I would wait till I could twist a fork in the flat easily and make me a sandwich whilst I wanted :lol:

    Haha. Good advice, have to try that next time. I just pulled 'er off. 195 temp in the thickest part of the flat. 200 in the thin end. I wrapped the thin part of the flat in foil the last 4.5hrs of the cook.

    Brisket's wrapped in foil and resting for a half hour now.

    Time to make my cider slaw (can't stand mayo) and heat up the Ranch Style beans.

    Ahh nothin' like a day off with home cooked BBQ!
