Thanksgiving brisket appetizer

Just picked up a 7lb brisket. Question - how long at 250 degrees? We will be leaving at noon on Thursday. The ride is only an hour so I will be good as far as timing on the FTC. Just trying to back into when I should start in Wednesday night. This is also my first overnighter. Thanks in advance & happy thanks giving to all! LD


  • Brisket will normally run between 1 hour and 1.5 hours per pound.

  • 14 hrs to be safe I would pull it after 10, place in a cooking pan with beef broth about 1/2 way up, foil and put it back for the final 4 hrs Good luck

    Just put on a 10 pounder that needs to be FTC'd by 9 AM.  
    It's not a science, it's an art. And it's flawed.

  • Went on last night at 9:15.  Was dialed in at 250 by 10:30.  LAst check was at 11:30 still 250.  Checked it at 5.45 this morning and the egg was at 200.  THe brisket was at around 190 or so.  I pulled it at 7AM at around 200 degrees.  It is now in the FTB(bag)C.  I may have to reheat it as we not be ready to eat it until 2PM.  More pics after it is sliced. imageimageimage
