Butt and Brisket

Postby Larry Wolfe » Sun Apr 01, 2007 7:15 am

Picked up some meat from the local grocery store yesterday, they were having a good sale. Gotta 6lb butt and the biggest brisket they had (4lbs)!
Rubbed the butt down with my buddy Tim Handy's "Southern Q" BBQ Seasoning, of the Award Winning "JT's BBQ Competition Cook Team". Then I rubbed the brisket down with the last of my supply of Wolfe Rub Bold! I need to get more!! :shock: Cooking over KF and hickory and monitoring the temps in the meat and the cooker with my Maverick ET-73 Remote Smoker Thermometers. These things are great, I've got the alarms set for the meat and the cooker, so I can relax inside until the meat is ready to come off the cooker!!

7 hour mark and I'm baffled!!!! Never ever ever ever had a brisket take 2 hours per lb but this is a first for me!!!! Butts at 170* and the briskets at 161*.

Could have been superchilled from being in the bottom of the fridge? The picnic that I did yesterday stalled for the longest time. Maybe you have a stall in progress?

Keep the faith, it'll get there :D

I think I had the therm in a bad spot. I went ahead and foiled and moved the therm and it went up about 5*, so it was ready to foil anyways. This brisket was way overtrimmed to begin with, so I don't want it to dry out.

Larry, that just sounds like you hit the plateau. I've heard a *lot* of people lately complaining about briskets and butts hanging up at ~160* for a *long* dang time.

Still can't wait for final results. Looks great to me so far. :D
