My wife's co-worker gave us a thawed 5-6 lb brisket to smoke tomorrow. She didn't know the weight so I weighed myself on the bathroom scale with and without it to find the difference. I have thrown a rub of chili powder, cumin, black pepper, white pepper, garlic, Creole seasoning, and red pepper flakes on it for the night. The problem is I have to work tomorrow from 7:30-3:00 and it is supposed to be about 90ish degrees out. I have no problem leaving my traeger out while I'm gone but should I set it for 180 and hope the ambient heat raises the temp to 200 OR set it to 225 and run the risk of it sitting at 240 for most of the time I'm gone? We are hoping to eat around 6ish.
