10 lb said the packaging. Trimmed some fat off. I am a total newbie to trimming and smoking. I got the smoker up to 275 threw the brisket on. Maintained temps from little below 225 up to 275. Still working on my fire management. The wrangler is small and thick. It can spike quickly and trying to keep a low and slow fire is hard as you can not add too many sticks without making the temps go past 275. Definitely have to babysit the smoker.
