    250 to 275 dome. Probaby 5+ hours. Put a fork in it and when it twists easy, it is done.

    Good luck, a little flat like that will be hard to get tender without drying out. May have better luck braising it in foil with some apple juice.
  • Thanks for the advise

    Try searching for a brisket braising recipe posted hear a while ago by "Travisstrick".  Everyone who has tried has enjoyed the results.  It may also come up via Google.
    Louisville;  L & S BGEs, PBC, Lang 36; Burnin' wood in the neighbourhood. # 38 for the win.  Life is too short for light/lite beer.

    Last flat I did I injected with:

    1- quart water(prefer

    3 - tablespoons beef base
    1- 15-ounce can strong beef broth

    Bring water beef broth to a boil and add the beef base stirring until it completely dissolves.  Let it cool and inject your brisket about each inch and let it sit overnight or a minimum of 6 hours.

    I would go indirect with a drip pan.  I used 50 / 50 apple juice and water in my pan to keep the juice from burning.  Plus I think the water help create a moister interior in the egg.  I know, most will say that is not need but I felt better about it.  Cook 250 until internal of 190.  Then start check it every 5 -10 degree up until your probe slides in and out with very little resistance or the fork twist.  I use a probe myself.  It is a small flat and I think you are going to have to help it with moisture in the meat and the cook to keep it from drying out.

    Here is my last flat. I used peach wood and Home Beef Rub.  It was very tender, juicy and great flavor.  Everyone loved it.
