Default Need quick wisdom on IT temps help!

I am cooking brisket


I cooked it to 185 and the temp dropped to 175 while resting, if I cook from 175 to 195 that is 20 degrees more cooked than if I cooked from 185 to 195 which is 10 degrees more cooked..

What do I do? I don't want to overcook it and Im not sure if I should cook to 185 or 195 now that it has dropped 10 degrees while resting.

Was it tender and ready to take off when you did. If so no problem. If your going by temp oly and its not tender, put it back on and yes you math is right. But 195 isn't the magic number either. Cook til tender

This is where having a Thermapen comes in double duty, tells you the temperature, and lets you know when it is super tender and ready to pull.

I remove my meat of all kinds for the most part when it is tender, the resting period only helps tenderize it more in my experience. It may heat up a bit, but I consider this rise insignificant. I don't do the "Well I want it at 195, and it is going to rise about 10 degrees, so I pull at 185" stuff. Temperature has nothing to do with knowing when it is done except for poultry. It is all about tenderness. Do you want to eat a piece of meat that is 195 F or do you want to eat a piece of tender meat?

Bludawg, your turn!

I guess I didn't really answer your question though, I would be afraid of putting it back on and drying it out now. Maybe foil it, add some apple juice or other liquid, and put it in the oven for a bit.

I am surprised that this question keeps on getting posed almost daily.
The Brethren answer again & again COOK UNTIL PROBE TENDER.
Maybe this needs to be shown as a floater going over the site continuously!
