Help with Brisket

I put a 2.25# brisket on this morning using Daddio's Easy recipe. The egg is cooking along at 200 nice and steady. The internal temp rose to 155 and stayed there quite awhile (The Plateau?) now my intenal temp has dropped to 144 and staying there? I checked with my insta read and it verifies the same temp. Egg still at 200. Any clues????

    personally i would be at 250 it will take a long time before you hit 195 with a temp of 200. and i do think you are in the plataeu it will rise slowley. but i would deffinatly be at 250


    happy eggin

    I agree with Bente. I almost never cook below 250 dome temp. With a 200 dome it would take a long time to get the 200 internal.

    The temp of the egg needs to be a minimum of 225 and, as others have said, closer to 250
  • Turned it up to 250 and ureka! All is right in the universe once again. Thanks, i was really looking for somebody to say turn it up before i ruined a brisket. I will let post after a taste test. It may look different but the help is still here.
