  • Once it is 180 or 185, start sticking a fork into it and twisting. Once the fork goes in and can be twisted with little resistance it is done regardless of the meat temp. If you go over that stage, the meat will begin to dry out.
  • How's that gasket thing going?
  • I would wait till that thing was closer to 200 to take off. I like to probe from about 195-205 and when the thermopen is in like butter I know it's done. Are you going to take the point off and make some burnt ends?

  • Chris, be sure and let us know how your brisket turns out. I am a sucker for any post with a dog in it. Your pooches look adorable. They must be awfully smart as well. :laugh: I bet you serve the brisket on that custom plate! :)

    Happy Birthday! The brisket looks super. It's amazing a Georgia fan can cook like that! Thanks again for sharing that peach 'drink' with a Gator fan at Eggtoberfest!

    Post some pics when you can of the brisket sliced.
