Brisket came off 6 and a half hours ago. Internal temp still 150. Serving in four hours. If I put in oven, what temp? Do I need to let it set 30 minutes before slicing if I go the oven route?
It is 108 right now. Maybe I just sit it on the asphalt in the sun. Butt ugly hot right now.

    Someone will chime in but I believe 140 is your mark to stay above. Even them you have some time. I would set my oven the lowest possible some go as low as 150 but kick it in there for a couple of hours at 170 or so and you should be solid

    Yeah, put it in the oven wrapped in foil at the lowest setting. 
    This is my signature line just so you're not confused.

    Not for too long though. The oven will dry it out. Maybe cycles of 30 min or so at the lowest setting. 
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    140 EXTERNAL is the temp you need to worry about.

    what kind of oven do you have? the by products of complete combustion if natural gas is carbon dioxide and water, so in theory a gas oven shouldn't dry out anything.

    however, you have more brisket experience than I do and I am curious about the oven or if it happens on all ovens, no matter if it the appliance is LP, natural gas, or electric.

    It's not my oven. its just keeping the brisket at high temp for long periods. Mine is electric though.

    I am so afraid of it being dry that I never warm it up- I serve it with a bbq sauce that is warmed up for those who want it (I eat it with a cold mayo-based sauce I pick up at our local bbq joint) and I serve the brisket whatever temp it happens to be.  I have also been surprised how warm it stays wrapped in foil, towel and in a "cooler"- but I have never bothered to check the temp once it is foiled.

    Heat up beef broth and throw it in there in the tightly wrapped foil.
