Brisket in the oven

Started a 11 lb brisket yesterday around 4:45 pm on the XL. It was doing fine until about 10:30 this morning when the temp in the egg started to drop. I cooked at 220 grid using my DigiQ and bumped it to 225 this morning. The brisket was at 186 and climbing nicely when I lost my fire. I double wrapped it and put it in the oven at 250 or so to finish. Then I looked in the fire box of the XL and I had burned all the lump except for about six pieces which surprised me. It was loaded when I started. I've never run out before.

Any suggestions on finishing in the oven? I know the brisket lost some heat in the transfer. I'm wondering how long till finish and how often to check with my thermapen? I'm not sure if this has happened to anyone else. Bummed... but it looks good so far if I don't screw it up. Pictures later.
