I checked on it when the IT was 200*F, but the flat still had some resistance. I let it go another 30 minutes and it probed perfectly. I was really surprised at the quality of the meat, since it was labeled Select.

Lessons learned:

1. Trim more fat before cooking.
2. BigMista's Beef Rub rocks!
3. Hot and fast cooking on the Akorn is soooo easy. I was able to do all sorts of things while the brisket was cooking. I like my RF offset, but sometimes it's nice to set it and forget it.
Looks great!
