    Beginner Stall question

    New poster .. and beginner in the art of smokin'. First the details ... BGE, Applewood smoke, 6# choice flat, flat is 3.5" at thickest, maintaining 225° to 250°, been on the smoker for about 2.5 hours. Internal temp is nearing 150°. Following Meatheads Texas Brisket recipe and wondering if I could be hitting the stall this early in the game. Thanks for letting me ask a newbie question.

    The meat will come up to stall temp pretty quick, but I would let it ride for a little bit at the stall, before you wrap it up. Just to make sure you get some good color and bark before you wrap.

    You can let it sit in the stall for an hour or two with out an issue. If you are cooking prime, you can let it go even longer, if not, wrap it when it hits about 165-170.

    Good luck and let us know how it goes. If you have any more questions, just let us know!

                    Welcome from Wisconsin. Glad you could join us!
                    Spinaker is spot on with his advice in my opinion, so I have nothing to add other than we'd sure love to see a picture or two of the finished product.

                      The BGE will hold steady for a really long time. Based on the time of your first post this may be too late. Make sure you’ve developed good bark prior to wrapping, if time permits. The wrap wi soften the bark.

                          The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


                          Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
