I have been planning my first brisket cook for weeks and last night was the big night. First run for my brand new digi q. Got the lump set up and the fire going. Installed the digi q clipped the grate probe and set to 250. Let it stY there a good 30 minutes to make sure everything was working and put the briskets on. Also decided to try out my new maverick dual probe and put one in each of my 6 pound briskets
right around two hours in I start getting temp readings in the 120s which seemed really high. Long story short whie the digi q probe was reading 225 the true temp (tested by thermapen) was well over 325. Scrambled to get the briskes off but by then temp shot up higher. Luckily neighbor was cooking a brisket on his pellet and we put our briskets on his smoker. I would have had to wait a while for the temp to come back down on my egg and get the whole process started again.
Any idea on why the bad reading in the digi q probe? Frankly I feel like returning it. I could ruin brisket without it lol! Not sure how I trust it now!
