How in the world was the brisket edible? Or am I missing something?
Usually brisket (and other large cuts of meat) have a temperature plateau. Brisket tends to plateau around 160-165 degrees. It sounds like he may have stopped his cook at the plateau stage, which would make for some very tough brisket.
