Brisket time

I bought a 7 1/3 pound brisket and planning a low/slow cook. From what I've read it seems like a good dome temp is 225? Already have it rubbed down and in the fridge and will bring it to room temp before putting on the egg. Am I right that this should take 1.5 to 2 hrs per pound meaning I'm looking at between 11 and 14 hours? I've done several pork butts however this is my first brisket. I assume it stalls the same? Thanks for any advice.

    Below is a thread actively running today (8/11) titled First brisket Journey  that you should check-out.  (I cannot paste the link or I would). Bottom-line, dial that dome to around 290-300*F (+/-) and see the rest of the info.  Higher cook temp (within reason) gets you to the same finish-line wih less chance fo drying it out.  Based on the weight, I suspect you are wrestling with a flat-the window for home-run success is much tighter than with a packer but worth the journey.

  • Thanks guys. Pulled it off at 197 after 9 hours. It was incredible. I held the temp between 280 and 300 throughout. Happy cooking.
