I need help with briskets , planning on cooking two Thursday night and need help with cook time, smoke time, internal temp.  I will be cooking them with butts at the same time, I have those under control but first time on the briskets and need some advice....thanks


I would smoke them @225F, apply up to four hours of smoke.

You are looking for an IT of 190-200F

That sounds like a lot of meat. Start early and use FTC if they get done early.

Looks like FLB has you covered.

I smoke my brisket/butts for 7 hours.

4 hours isn't enough for my taste.
If your so cool....where's your Tattoo.


I agree with FLBR....  START EARLY.  That is a lot of meat in the ES.  Brisket and Butt both reheat very well so if it done early it no big deal.  I have ftc'd butt for 8 hours before.  Its better to be too early than too late.
Is it bad if my wife refers to the smoker as "The Mistress"?
