Please forgive my ignorance, but I have what is sure to be a stupid question about generally estimating the time on a brisket.
I am smoking 2 flat cuts (about 4 lbs each) in a brinkmann electric with a blend of pecan and hickory (experimenting with different woods). I hear the general estimate is 1.5 hours per pound. The total time for 2 separate 4 lb cuts would be approx. 6 hours not 12 correct? I know temp is the ultimate indicator but this will be the difference between starting tomorrow or just waiting until new years morning.
I have been able to glean a good bit of techniques from other posts but did not see an answer to this specific question. Even still, any other feedback, tips, info would be well appreciated.
I am new to smoking so I thank you all for your patience. I'd be happy to share some seafood recipes if you're interested.
