OK so it appears that I have a bit of a problem. I had ordered an ET-732 this week and was hoping that it would be here in time for this smoke but it did not make it in time. I have read plenty about the accuracy issues with the stock thermometers that come with these units so I knew it was a must. (I did test mine with boiling water when I assembled the smoker a few weeks ago and it tested out fairly well actually.) Anyway, I put an 11 lb brisket on last night at what I thought was 225 degrees. I foiled it at 150 degrees around 2am which I thought was a bit early but I figured the temp is the temp right? Well I woke up again about 5 am and came down to check it again and IT is 200 degrees already! Clearly, the temp inside the smoker was not 225.
I'm not looking to serve this thing for about 12 more hours. What in the heck do i do with it now?
