Exclamation In Progress Brisket Question

I'm almost ready to pull a brisket, and I'm testing the meat with my temp probe. Near the ends of the flat, the probe goes in without resistance. In the point, there's no resistance either. But in the middle part of the flat as you bo back towards the point, there's still some resistance. The internal is 185. Should I leave it on longer until the middle shows no resistance? Or is it already overcooked?

I'd leave it on a bit longer..and then re-check the resistance.

I'm willing to sacrifice the ends of the flat for burnt ends for more tender slices for the thicker parts of the flat. The point will continue to stay moist. Hard to overcook that, unless you overcook all of the flat.

I'm with Puppyboy -- go for 190 internal then pull and put in cooler or cambro until internal climbs to about 195. I think you'll be good to go.

Pull it off at 198*, wrap, and hold to 203*.
