Oh and just my limited experience, and I've only done 4 briskets in a year and a half of egging, but I have found that briskets cook quicker than you think. My 7.5 lber was done today in about 7 hours cooked at 275-300. I had a 14 lb packer done in 9 hours once, cooked at 300. Cook to temp not time.
