Can this be? (fast brisket)

12-13 pound full brisket.  On for 3.5 hours.  Grate temps running from 220 to 270 (unreliable dome says lower).  Internal is 169.  wth?  I need this to go another 12 hours!

    I did a 17 pounder last weekend at 275 that only took 7 hours!  I don't know how it could possibly have been done that soon, but it was probe tender and delicious!

    QDude, I so did not want to hear that.

    It was a mystery how it could finish that quick.  If your's gets done early, foil it, wrap it in a towel, and put it in a cooler.  It will stay hot for a long time.

    That's pretty quick, but you'll still likely hit the stall pretty good.

    How long has it been since you calibrated your dome thermo? What are you using to monitor grate temp? Do you have a thermapen?

    Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ....

    No way.  Something has to be out of calibration.

    Hit a solid stall around 170 not long after I started this thread.  Problem is that it's 12.5 hours in and temp is 195-200 throughout.  Probing like butter everywhere but the thickest, centermost flat.  I can maybe push it another hour, but think this baby is going to be done in well under 1.5hr/lb.  Temps were 225-260 for the majority using a Maverick 732 at grate, crappy analog in dome, and thermapen for meat.  Not supposed to slice and eat for over 8 HOURS!!!!!!!!!!

    All is well. I just took off two 15lbers.

    I cooked them at 275 grate temp and it only took 10 hours for one and 11 for the other.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.
