about how long would a 4 lb flat brisket take to cook using a plate sitter and temp @ 200.


  • I usually do brisket flats - about that size. At 200 it will take forever. I usually do mine at 225 until it gets out of the plateau, then I crank it up to 250 or so until it his 190. Cook time ranges between 9 and 11 hours.
  • Really good

    I also think that 200 is too low. I would cook it at 225-250 grid temperature. I usually allow 1.5 to 2 hours for a brisket - so 4 pounds would take 6 to 8 hours.
