  • Re: Temperature Drop during Brisket Plateau?

    As you said, "added energy to make a physical change in the fat". Now if that change endothermically needs more energy (heat) than is being supplied by the mass around it, it will pull it from the temperature of the surrounding mass (meat) and lower the surrounding mass's temp. Heat is energy and anything above absolute zero degree temp is energy
  • Re: Temperature Drop during Brisket Plateau?

    Have you guys ever heard of the term "endothermic reaction" or "exothermic reaction"

    This is when two chemicals get together or a single chemical converts and react to absorb (endothermic) or give off (exothermic) heat. When the fat converts to coligen, it is in the process of an endothermic reaction and absorbs more heat than is ambiant and therefore temps drop.
