    Overcooked brisket

    My maverick thermometer didn't beep or I slept through it. It went to 214F internal. What should I expect?

    I'd bet it'll be good and very tender. Let it rest (and cool off) before slicing. Slice thick. If it doesn't slice well, pull it.


      I sure hope so lol. I'm giving it a real long rest. I turned off at 430am and just left it in oven to cambro. I'll be back this evening to deal with it.


        I once did a brisket that was on heat for 24 hrs between cooking, cambro, oven, cambro, oven, etc. It was crumbly but that just meant it was so tender it wouldn't slice. Save the au jus from the foil and pour it back on, and I think you'll be quite alright, not ideal perhaps but still all right.


          I have three words for you.... make some Chili!


            Interested to see how it turned out, in my experience beef is more than ok at higher temps, it just depends on how long it took to get to 214.


              On my Maverick ET-733's its real easy to accidentally turn off the audible alarm feature. I've done it several times by mistake. On any long cooks I double check to make sure the little icon on the front of the receiving unit shows that the alarm is activated.


                If you end up taking CandySue's suggestion and pulling it, you might also consider mixing some of the fat with it, along with the juice, as per Huskee.


                  I would make chili with it if it doesn't turn out. Brisket chill, is unreal. My favorite in fact.


                    Ok so it was extra tender. The outer sections I was able to get a few slices out of, middle has to pulled. What I noticed was that the pan had A LOT more juice as normal. I guess the longer cook time pulled out more of its juices, in a bad way.

                    I'll have to check that alarm feature you spoke of.

                    The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                    The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                    The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                    Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

                    This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

                    Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                    The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
