pid/brisket ?
« on: January 18, 2011, 02:09:15 PM »
anyone tell me how long does one dare leave a brisket in the smoker after I.T. reaches 185.  At what temp. should I set the controller?

thanks

I set mine to 185F (or whatever the target IT was) for six hours, to hold if I need to hold it.

thanks.  my timing was not the best.  I tried a 3# brisket at 200 deg.  , it is only at 178 after 8 1/2 hrs.  I am doing it in the garage, with a temp. of 70 deg.  From what I have read it only should take 1-2 hrs. per pound.  Does something seem wrong?  would leaving it at 185 over night cause problems.  thanks for the help as this is all new to me.

Overnight might dry it out a little.

What time did you want it done?
