I was planning to smoke a brisket for the first time on Friday night. I seasoned the meat the night before and about an hour before time to smoke I started up my masterbuilt to get it to temp. 30 min later I find out the element is bad and it won't heat up past 73 degrees. I had to wait till this morning to get in touch with masterbuilt and I know have the replacement part on the way. My question is now that the meat is seasoned and sitting in the fridge will it be ok to smoke probably Friday when I recieve the new element and get it installed? I don't want to ruin a whole packer brisket because I left the seasoning on too long before cooking. Can anyone advise?
