    Time & Temp Mantra

    Trying to boil down the best advice regarding time and temps on longer cooks (brisket etc). So I can give our masterclass folks an easy mantra to go away with. My best effort so far (if you come up with a better one though, I'm stealing it!)

    Time can tell tales.
    Temp sometimes fails.
    But probing is great for the truth.

    Get it close and let the cooker do the work.

      Temp over time, every time.

      This is what I use when I am teaching people BBQ.

        Set your heat
        Probe your meat
        BBQ hurries for no one

        Ah, training development.........always a challenge to relate to what the "student" knows and can understand.

        I suspect for most "learners" (alternatively newbs) the stresser underlying the importance of the time/temp factors is "will it be ready in time for when we're ready to eat?" So, I'll go to the preamble to whatever snappy phrasing suits your training style; start earlier than you think and be prepared to hold the protein over in a suitable manner.

          I almost typed this... I don't think people ask idly, they are thinking "I want to eat at 6...." So in addition to catchy phrases, I'd develop a chart, maybe a handout, that gives them estimated times and temps and then emphasize that BBQ is not an exact thing.

        Add to it "If you're lookin, you're not cookin"

          This is great. Like the comment on the time used for planning, very true. V2....

          Times just a guide
          Temp helps you decide
          But it's probing on which I've relied.

            Best advice is "It's done when it's done"

              If it's not done that is the barbecue gods telling you to crack open another beer.
