Dumb newbie question.

  1. How long does it take to cook a 7 pound beef brisket on a Silver Smoker. I know it take about 10 hours on my ECB. Just wondering because if it is a different time shorter or longer I would like to know. Thanks in advance.

    I think it would be all about the temperature. If it takes 10 hrs @X temp on your other unit, then it should be the same (roughly) on any unit as long as the same temp is constant.......I think.

    If running the same temps it should be about the same time but go by internal temps in case you encounter a plateau

    [​IMG] I don't know; but you could try one for a bout 4 - 5 hours and then double foil it and finish in the oven pretty quick. I set the oven for 350 and use the remote thermometer to make sure the thickest part is at least 195 deg internal before resting it. You could always do it a day or up to a week ahead of the time needed? Hope this helps. Rich
     
  5. I cooked it yesterday and it took about 8 hours. It took abou 30lbs of red oak lump. It turned out great. I foiled it up after 6 hours and finished off the rest of the lump and it was great. Everyone raved about it. Thanks for the info. Guess I was just alittle nervous this being my first brisket on my Siver Smoker and all.
