I tried searching for this topic, but couldn't find the answer to my question. For financial reasons, I don't have an actual smoker yet, so I smoke on an old grill I have (Getting a custom made smoker soon). The grill I use has quite a bit of leaks and is difficult to keep a temp without constantly feedingthe fire. I normally smoke brisket at 215-250(Max), but today I put the brisket in at 275 degrees. The temperature is dropping, slowly but surely, and adding charcoal to keep a consistent temp is becoming a pain in the butt! So My question is - will the inconsistency of smoking my brisket at 275 starting temp and letting it slowly drop to around 220 by the time it's finished affect my brisket badley?
