That is a good sized flat.  I suspect is has a nice 1/4 inch of fat on it to help season and moisten the insides as it melts its way through.   :)
I don't think size matters.   ;D  ;D IT of 180 to 185 should do it.

With giz - 7 lber is a good sized flat.  The 200 deg is a good plan and expect about a 9 to 10.5 hour smoke.  It wouldn't hurt if you waited until an IT of 190 and FTC'd it for a couple of hours.  Brisket is not the easiest smoke, but it is so rewarding.  Good eats and good luck.

Thanks for the advise. Yea from what I read here brisket may not be the ideal thing to try for a 1st smoke but oh well. I got the smoker yesterday and got it seasoned and ready to go, plan to put some salmon on it tonight as it should cook pretty fast compared to brisket.

Thanks again
Tim
