Cook time for a 10 pound brisket?

Postby austingta » Sat Sep 03, 2011 3:29 pm

I'm cooking a smaller brisket Monday- 10 pounds, packer style, with the fat cap on- and I was wondering how long I should expect it to take? I want to take it off at 3:30 PM and slice at 4:00. I'll be cooking over a mesquite/oak mix at around 225*. Oh yeah Elgin sausages too! But they are easy.

Thanks

Start earlier than you think.... brisket holds well in a cooler surround by towels or newspaper. Better to have it done early than have the guest milling around hungry. A ten pounder at 225* I'd allot 12 hours - especially if your brisket is right out of the refrigerator.

Good luck and enjoy.

I'm going to go against conventional wisdom when I cook mine tomorrow. I'm going to start it in the oven and finish it on my pit. I know that's backwards from all I've ever read. I'll post a full report.
