Bingo! This is why, when I stopped cooking at around 170F, thinking the
meat was done, it turned out to be a bit tough.
Thanks a bunch for the info.
I had to learn that in the beginning.
Yes, it is "done", as in "cooked meat", but it is not barbecue yet. Once
you learn that, you are on your way to making great barbecue.
