Hi Hook,

Thank you.
I also smoked a fattie in my smokette.
But I was to hungry to take pictures of it.
My family came over for mothers day, so I cooked for them.
2 Brisket, 1 Fattie, Corn bread, Slaw and Mac salad all from scratch.
Dumb question.... But, I am new...

Did you put the Brisket back in at 170 for 3 hours in foil? Or did you just wrap in Foil with water and apple juice?

Thanks
Same question.

If you took it only to 170, you're about 25 degrees short.

The reason "some" people foil at 170 is to preserve the bark and keep it from getting too dark HOWEVER...

...continue to cook until it hits in the 190's, say 195 for foiled brisket.
Hi Guy's,

Yes I put the Brisket back in for 3 more hours in foil. It was so tender.

I thought that the reason for foiling at 170 and adding water and apple juice and cooking 3 more hours was to make it more moist and tender?

Thank you,

Good question. Yup, you're right that's one of the reasons.

Well, I'm not a fan of foil, but the reason why most do it indeed is to capture the juices (fat) that renders. From a contest cook perspective, the 170 talked about isn't for what you state as much as appearances. FYI, I don't foil my contest briskets.

Cooking in foil in "braising" so it will cook faster once you foil it.

Tendency is to get it over tender by wrapping it, so take it out at a lower temp, say 5 degrees lower.

Anytime.

Thanks for posting the photos. Those tend to be our most popular posts, so with the new forum feature of posting a bunch like that, it tells the story.
