That will give you a starting place since we don't know what equipment you are using.

Good for you - the first brisket I smoked in my MES was a 16 lb one. 

 

Line up the questions and someone will definitely give you some answers. Letting us know what kind of smoker you are using will be very helpful and maybe where you are located, since altitude does play a part in how long it will take to cook.

1 1/2 hour per lb. 225 deg. Smoke for about first 3 hours. fat side up. Cut across the grain.

A good thermometer that is calibrated , and a lot of 'patience' is needed. Unless you cut it up into smaller pieces , it's gonna be a long ride. You're looking at a possible 22hrs. at 225*F average.

 

 one or several , 225*F for 1.5 to 2 hrs. per pound

 

 at apox. 200*F , you'll have tender Brisket like this one,


with patience your meal will turn out marvelous :drool

 

Good luck , don't give-up and  . . .

After 4 hours the internal temp is 164°. Is that normal? I feel like it reaching temp too quick.
