brisket ???

  1. SO I started a 3lb brisket about 4pm today.  Between the hours of 2110 and now 0030, it has raised a measly 4 degrees.  I know about the stall and I have heard that it can take a while.  I would have figured that a 3 lb brisket would not have a 3 hour stall.  Smoker has been kept between 220-235.  Have used 2 different digital and one analog thermometer and sitting at 160.  Any input would be greatly appreciated.  BTW it did get to 140 in about 3.5 hours.

    Sometimes it happens. Just make sure your chamber temp is correct. You can always foil it to force it thru but I say wait it out.

    give us some pix.how did it go?
     
  5. yes it is done but it did not get done until about 0400.  I just did not think that a 3 lb brisket would take 12 hours in the smoker.  Not sure how it turned out yet as I made it specifically for chili tonight.

    sorry about the quality was taken from my iphone

    I was wondering what that piture was of in facebook. It sure didn't look like a brisket to me. Now for your brisket you can take it out of the smoker. It's not gonna take anymore smoke flavor and finish it in the oven.
