    It has been years since I made a brisket, partially because I had a disaster the last time!  I tried to smoke a brisket on a Weber Kettle, and again, disaster.  I am smoking a 4.3 lb Flat cut brisket for a birthday party tomorrow and am freaked out. How long, what temp, I read 225 at 1.5 hours per pound. Is that right? I am using an electric smoker. I don't want to have another block of leather?  Any help is appreciated.  Thanks!
     
  2. I cook mine at 225, for about 1 hr per pound. When it reaches internal temp (I shoot for 185), remove and wrap in foil. Then wrap in a towel and put in an ice chest to rest. 30 min to an hour and again check internal temp, at this point looking for 190...
