How long and low can you cook a brisket?
10lb prime. Untrimmed.

Need it ready for 7 pm tomorrow. Won't be able to check it until then.

Ask ryno about his 96 hour brisket cook. It's legendary.

Personally, I've never gone more than about 15 hours on a 10 lber, st about 220 steady the whole way through.

I wouldn’t go lower than 225. You can usually figure 1-1.5hr/lb.

You should have it rolling now to be ready for 7 tonight. You can always FTC (foil, towel, cooler) it until ready to eat.

Late to the party.

Grant Pinkerton in Houston rolls his briskets at 16 hours at 220 or so... then wraps n a towel and puts in a yeti for 6 hours. Yep, 6 hours. His brisket is incredible. So moist and so tender. I managed to reproduce it at home.... almost a 24 hour brisket, and I know the OP said he couldnt check on it, but thought I would share. I like mine pretty fatty I dont trim anything other than some of the deckle.

The lowest I've cooked a brisket is 17 feet below sea level.

I've kept one in a cheap foam ice-chest for 4 hours, and it was still too hot to touch barehanded when slicing.

I always try to let them sit in the chest at least an hour or two. I think it is almost as important as the time on the smoker.

I would bump that temp up to 250 a 10 lb would cook in about 10 hrs or so. Cooking brisket too low for a long time can dry out the meat.

What do you mean, you won't be able to check it until then? You are going to leave a brisket unattended for a long period of time?

I cook a brisket until the internal temp's at least 200-205 throughout. It doesn't matter what temp I cook at, but i usually aim for 225-250.

I hope he’s got an electric smoker or a ceramic grill with a fan device.

225 for around 9-10 hours. when the Internal temp hits 165 wrap in foil or butcher paper until it reaches 200-205. take off and put a towel around it and into an ice chest for an hour or 2, You're Welcome.
- Cook it by temperature not by time.

Electric smoker.

But I leave an oven on 18 house any time I make chili.

It's electric

Running 155 all night. Then bumped to 195 this morning as I was leaving.

195? You want your brisket to cook to at least 195 before you take it out, wrap it in foil and towel, and place in ice chest. It will continue to cook a little to 200-205 that way.

At 195, you will be lucky if the brisket is at 195 internal temp when you return.

If you want water to freeze, you don't put it in a room that is 35 degrees and expect it to eventually freeze do you? Similarly, you won't get a brisket to cook to 200 degrees, when its sitting in an oven at 195 degrees.

It was 135 when I left this morning.

Nice job though.

I can always bump the temp when I get home. I can't turn the clock backwards.
