Finishing up a beautiful 7 pound brisket yesterday, with a small slab of baby back ribs, I wanted to check the final temp of my brisket and plugged up the polder. The temps jumped to 210 then jumped to 185 then to 95 then read COLD or something to the same effect. I thought the battery was weak so I changed it to a new one. Same thing happened. Any suggestions. [p]Good news however! The brisket couldn't have been better, ribs too! Had part last night, saving the rest for the Titan bowl.
