    Hello everyone!

    I have a question on smoking a brisket in my Masterbuilt 30' electric smoker. The brisket is 14 lbs so it does not fit on one rack. I will cut it into 2 pieces approx 7lbs each. Would the cooking time be based on the original weight of 14lbs (1.5 per pound per hour) or would I base it on a 7lb brisket even though I would have 2 of them in the smoker. I've never cooked a brisket before so this is my first time. I know you should never base it on time but on temperature of 190-200 but I wanted to make sure I get an estimated cooking time.

    I appreciate any help you can give this novice smoker!

    As long as the two pieces are separated, say on different racks, you base your time on a 7 lb brisket.
