Default Brisket stall help

need some help guys i have a 8# point been between 245-275 for about 8 hours it hit the stall around 165 and after 2.5hrs starting rising up to 172 at that time i had to add some more fuel and have been sitting at 268 for the last 2 hours dropped to 158 and has been stuck there. i have never done a brisket with out using the crutch and wanted to try without it. is this a normal stall for a brisket?

thanks for the help

yep. Not sure why it dropped temp, but the stall is unpredictable.

Actually, I think the closer it is to suppertime, the longer the stall lasts.

The answer to that question is, "its done when its done". My wife used to be the same way but now she just expects dinner whenever and goes on and eats the sides first. Still not as late as when I was drinking.

The stall is when the magic of turning a tough muscle into a succulent piece of beef is happening. Just relax and enjoy the ride.

I'm not sure you have your probe in the right place looking at the pic. I like to go in horizontal from the end to the thickest part. Have you checked for probe tender?
