Who around here pull briskets early and then let them finish cooking in a cooler? If ya do what have your results been and what is your process?

Nope I bring my briskets up to probe tender and then let them rest down to 160/165 for slicing.

I rested my last brisket in a cooler and the results were awesome. I miscoordinated the completion of the various foods and dropped the brisket in the cooler to maintain heat. It worked very well.

Was it just for the rest or did you pull it early to finish in the cooler dhal22?

Just for the rest. Left it there a couple of hours while I got friends family and different foods coordinated.

I don't finish it in the cooler, but will rest it there, like many others have done, so that you have plenty of leeway on when you finish vs when you want to eat.

Agreed - I will pull the brisket at temp, let it air out if i have foiled it on the cooker for like 5 minutes, then double foil wrap, then towel and into the cooler for 1.5 hours. I have found the smaller the cooler, the better but I have no science to prove that!
