So do you think that's where it was? No, of course not.
Just checked on my briskie cruising along in the BGE at 375(from the chicken I cooked last time.). Temp on the brisket is 162, and I'm 3 hours in.
Working temp back down to 275, and then once it's done, I guess it will get the long rest in the oven at 200 I wanted to do last time. And I guess I get to try really HNF brisket today!
Wish I could blame it on beer. Keeping my fingers crossed I didn't ruin it.
Kind of did the same thing last time. I do not use an ATC or any other controller, but I had by UDS set and cruising at 230. I went to a family gathering at a motel for a couple of hours. I had planned on letting the 18lbs packer go for about 20 hours and had the timing set for it. I came home a couple ours later and the drum was at about 350. The internal temp was 160, i wrapped it in paper and adjusted the drum to run correctly. At 1 am I checked again and the internal temp was 205 and butter tender. Placed it in the oven on 200 for about 4 hours. At 6am I pulled it from the oven and seperated the point. I then had to let the brisket sit on warm until 5pm that night.
It was still good, but it was better at 6am.
