Possible Ruined Brisket?

edited April 2012 in EggHead Forum

So, here's the story...

Went home for lunch from work to put a 15 lb brisket on.  I was a little rushed for time so got the egg going, but didn't have time to fully get to stabilized temps. Set my vents for the typical 250 (wasn't at that temp yet though) and put the brisket on.  Got home at 6:00 tonight and the fire's out.  The problem is I'm not sure how long the brisket has been sitting there without any heat. It doesn't look cooked at all so I'm thinking the fire went out shortly after I put it on. What's the chance it's ruined by sitting out for what could have been multiple hours? Or go ahead and cook it for 25+ hours and all will be well?
