Started my 5# brisket in the smoker around 7:30 pm. Had issues with the remote thermometer not working! Thought I was sitting at 177 in the smoker, stayed a little too steady and by the time it occured to me to check the one out there, it was up to 290 and had been for at least 30-45 minutes. Got the temp regulated,continued the smoke for the remainder of the 3 hours I'd planned before moving it indoors with the ribs I'm finishing off in the oven. Juiced and wrapped all, stuck the probe in the smaller of the 2 and after 3 hours it's only at 128. Looking pretty good but I'm wondering if that long flash of high temp will dry it out?
