    hey am smoking my first brisket to day I put it on at 5 am with in the past 30mins my temp started droping after holding 225-230 for the past 6hrs. long story short my masterbuilt propane smoker went out. I tried lighting it back and no luck at all. the only thing I knew to do is get it out I check the temp and it was at 156. I put it in the oven at 225. can this brisket still be salvaged thanks for any and all info

    thanks no it never got below 140. as soon I i pulled it out i checked and it was 156 so it is in the oven now. on 225. So should I still let it get to 170 amd foil it. and then wait till 190 to get out? thanks.

    bmudd X2.  You're good to go.  I would foil at the 170* mark and take it to whatever you were planning on (190* for slicing, 195 - 205* for shredding).  Ya probably got plenty of smoke on it in the early hours.  Should be a tasty result!  Don't forget the Qview!
