Burnout...need opinion for a newbie

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, i started a 15# brisket at 1500 yesterday. At 2200 when i fell asleep, it was around 151 IT and 210 smoker temp. Added fuel at midnight and noted fire was a little dead at midnight but got it back up, pit never got below 180. Awoke to my 2am alarm and pit was at 115!!! I threw a hot fire together and pit is back at 225. The problem is the brisket IT is still going down, currently just saw it drip from 144 to 142. Im just praying the heat gets to the brisket and it doesnt drop below 140. Any suggestions?

Don't sweat it. The meat is fine. The Bacteria were long dead and even if the meat dipped below 140°F, any air borne bacteria will not pose a risk. As soon as you restarted the fire, they were all killed. In many cultures a single pot of soup is reheated with more ingredients added each time for years! Enjoy the Brisket...JJ
