    A few things to consider-if you are indirect cooking at around 250-275*F on the dome-plan on 8 hours for the brisket (if done early you can foil, towel and cooler).  Don't know rib type (BB or spare) but they can take 4-6 hours depending on on your cook method, foil or not etc.  You can search "fast brisket" and turbo ribs for a different approach.

    I'd take it closer to 300 dome to give you about 275 grate temp, 4-5 hours all together. pull the ribs, probe the brisket, wrap it if necessary(too dark) and let it ride till it's done. 4lb flat shouldn't need more than 6hrs at 275.
