Unexpected rain and hail storm. Trying to salvage brisket

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hey y'all, 

During my second brisket smoke, a bad hail and rain storm blew in unexpectedly. I had my smoker covered with towels and some pans to try and deflect some of the rain, but I don't think it's going to pass over any time soon. How have you guys dealt with this?

 

My IT is at 165 right now. I smoked for 6 hours then wrapped it and smoked for about 2 more hours before the storm hit. Would this be ruined if I moved it to the oven at 225 degrees? I wasn't adding any more smoke at this point anyway.

 

Any advice is appreciated as I would hate for this to go bad.

 

Thanks,

JD

Yeah, throw it in the "O" @ 225-250*. If your smoke chamber temps drop it will force a stall on the meat...just moving it to the "O" will also force a stall, so don't sweat that. Get your oven preheated before you move it.

Yeah, it'll be good. To slow down the cooking once foiled never hurt a brisket... a little longer to melt the connective tissues and it'll be even more tender.
