    Tender? It better be! The bark is looking good and didn't feel hard. The foil is back on and the temp is immediately increasing

      I asked if it's tender because that's the indicator if it's done. If it's really tender and the meat is in at least the high 180s, you should take it off the heat and cambro it. It's probably as good as it's gonna get

        I don't know how to tell if its tender. Never really been a touch feel kind of a guy, just always went off of looks.

          Poke it with your probe. If it goes in like butter you know it's ready for cambro.

            It feels like butter in some spots, but not all. I could just be hitting fatty areas. I see on the brisket page it states 200-205 and I'm used to butt which is 195-203. Should I yank this when I see 195 or 200? I'm at 189 right now. I'm hoping to pull no later than 7 (Eastern).

              Pulled it after 13 hours when it hit 200. Its resting in this cooler bag on a tray with a towel wrapped around. I'm gonna give it two hours.Click image for larger version

              You want to probe for tenderness and temp in the thickest part of the flat. Probe tender or 203-205-ish, whichever comes first.

                I agree with Jerod. In this case probe tenderness is likely to come earlier than 203-205 because you opened the wrap and the meat cooled off due to evaporative cooling... then it started heating back up. The meat spent a lot of time above 180F, which is a good temp range for the collagens and such to melt away and give you tender meat. Once they are melted away it's as tender as it's going to get and it'll just dry out if you keep cooking.

                When you're resting meat it's important to keep as much heat as possible. This allows some of the moisture to get pulled back into the meat. If you have more towels you can wrap around that cooler bag I'd recommend you do that.

                We want to see pics when she comes out for the guests!

                  If you guys are both right, I hope you're not, I'm still whipping up some Texas Barbecue juice (thanks to Jerod's help on my last brisket) so it should help: http://amazingribs.com/recipes/BBQ_s...mop-sauce.html

                  I've had juices and rendering galore with this "beast"!

                    You should be alright. 2+ hours of a good warm rest really helps even things out. I've had two lower quality briskets that did not receive the proper "warm rest" and were less than ideal. Even though they were taken to 205 internal.

                  Here is the money shot, in my opinion:

                    Very happy! The middle of the flat was a little dry for me, but my Dad sure loved it! Thanks for all the advice throughout the day!!

                      Awesome result L&S, especially considering we had to draw out the cook so long. I'm glad it turned out well!
