thanks every one. I did see that I was cutting the wrong way after I took the pics so I turned and discovered against the grain and saved the night. I can't wait until my next brisket. plus every one ate all the first one last night so there is no left overs. that sucks. tonight fish
I did my first brisket yesterday and it was a roller coaster all day but everyone said sit tight and let it run and it will work itself out and guess what, it did and it was great. Have another beer and watch the temp on the meet and do as they have suggested, pull at 195 to 200 wrap in blanket, put in ice chest to keep hot for a few hours then eat.
well I am not on the wagon and I have already started. If every one shows up and my Brisket is not done I will be drinking very heavy, I will drink your part Cen-tex. Thanks again fore info, evaporative cooling, no kidding!! WOW I have a lot to learn.
