hot and fast not ment to be?
 
upper 60s today, so when I got up this AM I trimmed up a 12 lb. packer, gave it a nice coat of Big Mistas Bitchin beef rub heated up the stickburner and tossed her on at 7 figuring it would be done around 5 or so. The stickburner was cruisin along between 2 and 3 hundred mostly around 250, while I was doing other things. About 1:30 I realized I hadnt stuck the temp probe in so I tried. It went in like butter, all over. I was reading 205-210 internal no matter where I stuck it. So off it came and foiled and into the cooler with some towels. BTW it tastes great, I had to test it!
I have never had a packer go this fast! at least 2 1/2 hrs sooner than expected? The stickburner was runnin like it always does, I think both my therms on it are good, never had a prob with them before and they were runnin the same readings. I was burning well seasoned oak.
The packer was one from Sams, no thicker of thinner than any other Ive ever done.
Anyone ever had one go this speedy?

All the time, I aint cooked a brisket past 6 hrs in I can't remember how long

It must have spent more time around 300 then 250.

I think Vision is right, I think today it must have run hotter. There are some variations, cut to cut, but, I can't remember a 6 hour packer at 250F.

It must have spent more time on the side nearer 300. Thats the only thing I can fgure out. Lessons learned? Put in my probe therm when I put on th meatSo I can see whats going on. I just got lucky I checked it when I did.
On the upside it tasted excellent, maybe just a little dryer than one of my other briskets, but still very tasty!

I've only cooked 2 briskets HnF so far, but both were done in the 6 hour range without crutching. Both were +/- 12 lbs.

Hmm this is interesting, I'm in deep south Texas and at the cook off yesterday my ribs were done 2 hours early and my brisket was done two hours early. In the conversation with some of the other cooks before and while standing around at the awards there were several other teams that said the same thing. One of my buddies was competing at a different event 2 hours north of me and several teams there had the exact same thing happen. For sure I know my temps were exactly the same as always and my meats were exactly the same as always, everybody else said the same thing about their's. We had a brutal southeast wind so we were thinking maybe the atmospheric pressure? But your way north of us so I guess its still a mystery. Just find it interesting we all had the same issues.

Yeah I'm WAY north of Edinburg! Hows the Javelina huntin down there?My wife suggested that it may be lower humidity, and an incoming front.

Lots of Havalinas down here for sure, thats what we were thinking, the wind was brutal saturday because the front was almost coming in and so we thought maybe something about the atmospheric pressure maybe because of that too.
