Default The Craziness that is Brisket

So this morning I throw my 11 pound brisket on the smoke at 4:30 am. I had the temp hold at 250 degrees but 8 hours later it is showing an internal temp of 200 degrees. However, I probe it and feel the brisket and it is not even close to butter. What the heck is going on? Anyone have any idea what I am dealing with?

I mean I took out the probe and am just going on feel now but I keep checking it every hour.

You're dealing with a brisket, it will be done when it's done.

It isn't ready yet. Keep cooking and checking every hour or so, soon it will be butter.

Yes I have tried my thermapen and a normal temp gauge and they both show about the same temp.

Love it, just wanted to make sure my brisket isn't going to burn up somehow.

Your probe might be in a piece of fat. 11lb at 250 won't be done in 8hr.

These briskies are crazy cuts man. I think it'll be done soon. I'd keep checking every half hour to 45 minutes.
