Probe location for brisket

Postby 88rxna » Fri Jul 07, 2017 10:51 am

Am I probing this on the bottom left below the thick fat?
That fat is separating the flat and tip correct?Image

No and Yes....

No - you want to probe the thickest part of the FLAT...

Yes - that fat you're referring to separates the POINT (on left) from the FLAT (on right)

At least this is the way I understand things to be.

But isn't the flat underneath the fatty section we're referring to?
I'm worried about drying this out.
Where should I probe it?

Put the probe in the middle of the flat.

Everyone loved it but the edges we're dry. I ended up wrapping it because it stalled after this photo and dropped to 176 and held forever.
I pulled it at 183, the point and flat section we're great... the flat along was dry

So here's a re heated leftover...
It still falls apart but it's super dry.
Is this actually under cooked? Anyone able to tell?Image

Imo it doesn't look undercooked. If it's dry, heat up some beef broth with garlic and a little butter, not much butter tho.
Lay the slices in there and let it simmer for a while. It will absorb more than you think.
Then, u can make a good brisket Sammy with it, juice and all.

Thanks...it's still falls apart good, yesterday the center was flowing juices as I was cutting it. It wasn't super tender though.
Should I have kept going cooking it? I stopped because it was already past dinner time.
It cooked for almost 17 hours

I left a big part of the flat untouched.
