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...
