well this is wierd.. it's 11pm and been cooking my brisket for 3 hours at 300* grate temp and the internal temp is now 182*. The probe def. did not go in like "budha". I will try and wake up at 7AM (11 hour cook time) to see about wrapping it in butchers paper. I have about 20 hungry farkers coming tmrw... Please don't make me have to order famous dave's and lie.
