    If you really want the Brisket Gods to answer, you must first pray to them. Even then they may or may not answer. Here is a great prayer to the Brisket Gods:

    Oh Brisket Gods, I pray to thee,
    Cast your guidance and blessing down upon me.
    Oh ruler of both fire and flame,
    Guide me so I avoid failure and shame.
    Hold my hand and steer me straight,
    That this brisket may turn out great. 
    May my point be moist and my flat be true,
    This I humbly beg of you. 
    Down on my knees I do pray,
    That you might bless me and show me the way. 
    Fan my flame and stoke my fire,
    And show the world that SGH is not a liar :o

    Sometimes they answer, sometimes they don't.   

    Been doing this for years! Well said my friend. 
  • Brisket Gods!

    So I normally don't inject brisket and just go 250 done until done. If need to be done and it won't I will wrap in foil or paper. However this is weird as hell and only think I can link it to is this time I injected with butchers prime injection mixed with water.  I put on a 12 lb choice at 4am steady at 250 dome with drip pan with about 12 oz of outdated flat coke so the drippings don't burn. When I got up and checked it at 8 it was already 151 then around 10 noticed it was down to 147. Left with the kids for a few hours and came home around 230 and it was at 144. Double checked with thermapen for internal and my dome thermo was just calibrated as well. Also running a maverick which was spot on. I have it wrapped and slowly bringing up the egg temp to around 300.

    Does the injection really add this much time?

    Congrats on the Big 50 ole buddy. Believe this or not, but in 54 years I had never put on a suit until last week. No bull$hit. Think I might cook a brisket wearing it =)

    @SGH - I can see why you would need a suit at those places. If you had Ron's money you could just buy the island...................... Sorry Ron but someone had too.
