Brisket question

Discussion in 'Beef' started by jonathandavis89, Jan 28, 2015.

  1. The wife picked up a small brisket on special at Shop Rite.. only 2.89 lbs in total size. If I'm still looking to go low and slow, approx how long would I need to smoke it to get to 200 IT?  Also opinions wrapping when it hits a certain temp before finishing (is that usually 165?)?

    When I do briskets I plan for 1 hour per pound plus 2 hours at 235.  I always foil at 165.  I pull the brisket at 195-197 and  into an empty ice chest for at least an hour and 2 or 3 are better.  Be sure you keep an eye on your temps both smoker and meat and you'll be fine.  Wrapping will help conserve moisture.

    Good luck
