Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Its another "my fire went out cooking brisket" thread! Is my brisket ruined?

Ok, started brisket at 8:30 last night.  Things were humming at about 250 and I went to bed about 11.  Internal temp steadily rising (160 when I went to bed and 168 at midnight).  Sometime around 3 am the internal temperature dropped to 158.  I checked and the fire was out.  Egg thermometer read 40-50 (outside temp was 40 degrees).

When I opened, the brisket was still "sizzling".  Internal temp never dropped below 158.  I wrapped in foil and put it in the over.

 

Verdict???

 

Thanks...
