Beef & Pork are different as is each Butt and each Brisket. I find those that struggle with the "FEEL" of probe tender sometimes benefit from a" visual aide" Close your Eyes, clear your mind, Now think about That Hot Monkey Love when your Huck-a-Bucking with your woman..... Got IT?!? That's the "FEEL"!
