    Brisket

    I don't know if I have learned a new trick or not but this week I have cooked 4 perfect briskets in a row. It started because I forgot to set my alarm the 1st time. I hit the stall at 150 and wrapped it and went to bed, didn't wake till the next morning and it had cooled to 100 degrees,cussed a little and fired everything back off and no stall this time,took it off at 203,let it cool before slicing and it was perfect, so I did the next 3 the same way and fixen to put another on. Using it in my Philly's and French Dips too and it is working well.

    Photos or it doesn't count. lol

    I'm sure those who stress and struggle with briskets, racking their brains, staying up for 24 hours in a row, etc wont like the fact that you've invented lazy brisket.

      Hate to sound a sour note, but how long did it sit between 100 and 140? Danger zone over 2 hours I've heard.

      Technically it may have broke the "rules", but wrapped at a temp high enough to be pretty sanitary and reheated to 203 while still wrapped with virtually no chance for recomtamination is a realistically a very safe cook.

      Suspect that the success of the cook was because it spent a whole lot of time in the temp range (above 160) that starts to melt connective tissue. "Done" for brisket type cooks is a combination of time and temp, not just ending temp! Same reason a faux cambro hold is so helpful. Very slow cool down extends the time above the 150-160F. range. Pirate just snuck that "hold" into the middle of the cook while he slept in. 😁
