Fell asleep while smoking a brisket

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Started a 16lb brisket @ 8:30 pm, put new coals on @ 1:00am and took a nap and woke @ 4:00. Rushing to the smoker which was @ 0 degrees. I put a thermometer in the meat, it read 137. From 1:00 - 2:00 smoker would have been between 225-275. From 2 on not sure how quickly the temp dropped. Is it okay to eat when I bring it back to temp?

I assume it must have reached above 140 but never inserted a thermometer prior to this initial read.

Please help
