I can control the temperature of my smoker and have no time limitations.
For a brisket ,is 200 better than 225?
This site has tons of info.
I would suggest you spend some time reading all the different forums and the WIKIs.

Have a great day!!!
I too agree with Rod and Al, I like mine to be at an average of 200*to 225*f; having said that,I allow for a short spike when I open the FB door to add wood by closing the inlet until my sticks are afire. Ignition usually starts in a very short time as I heat my sticks on the top of the FB.
Have fun and...
