Steve: I take mine to 180 190 then wrap.

Steve, that seems like a long time for a brisket. I don't foil mine until I have taken it off at 190 and then double foil it and turn it fat side up to rest in the cooler for 3-4 hours! VIA Jim Minion, of course! =D>

Sure sounds like a stubborn one. Damn things can fool you sometimes. I have had them get up to temp as quickly as 8 hours. some stall around the 150 170 mark and take for ever.

That is a stubborn cow pie. F**l is a personal decision. I've seen them go on for quite a while but 20 hrs. is a little on the long side to still be sittin' on 168. I probably would have gotten sick and tired of the little bugger, wrapped it and poured the heat to it. Good luck. Let us know how it turns out.

Good Q!

Jack

I usually wrap it at 165 and then pull it when it hits 190. Talking about this makes me want some Brisket!!
