    Buddy wants to do a turbo brisket on Sunday. 275F or 300F?  He has a 13 lb'r. He can get it on at 8 am, and want to eat at 6 pm ... so we have 10 hours to work with including towel wrap/cool.  So let's say 8h of cooking and couple of hours to cool.

    What temp you guys suggest for the dome?

    I was super excited, thought Henapple was back.

    Lots of ewetube videos comparing temps and methods. I am curious to see if anyone here has done a turbo brisket recently.
    If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.

    It amazes me, how many people do not realize how the future works.

    Turbo is more like 320-350F.  Try that, turn up the heat if he's cutting it close 
    I love lamp..

    Wowsers that is warm ... you sure it won't dry out?

    I read one post on here (after a search on Turbo Brisket) ... 300F dome, 6h to do a 13 lb. Wrapped in foil at 160F internal ... so that seems fast enough.

    I'm thinking he can start at 275F and crank to 300F if he's running out of time. Ideally, you want it in the foil wrap in about 6h ... if he starts at 8 am ... that will put it in the foil around 2 pm ... then another 2h to 3h to get to 200F ... then let her cool for 1h to 1.5h, and you're eating at 6:30 pm.

    If that works for him, I'm going to try that one day on my egg ... it is such a paint to stress about overnight brisket.  8 am start for 7 pm dinner sounds far better.

    @Mark_B_Good - the temp of the egg or any smoker really has no bearing on whether the meat is dry or not. Especially if you wrap when the bark sets.  The meat is done at tender you just get there quicker on a higher temp smoke. The higher cook temp does shorten your window of opportunity to catch the meat at just the right time because it will overcook so much faster.  I believe that @nolaegghead and @SGH ran a brisket over the 400 mark and brisket camp and it came out good.
