 I have a 4 pound brisket from one of our steers... brisket is pretty small. How many hours do you feel I should smoke it? Thanks guys!!!!

Until you can stick it with a toothpick and have little to no resistance. it should be like passing it thru butter!

What Foamheart said!! Or until you can poke it with a thermometer and it feels like butter. not frozen butter or fridgerated butter, but butter that sits out on the counter or table all the time.

I usually let em go till about 185* then start poking all over every 5*. Last one was reading an average of 204*. The one before was 200*. Just depends on the meat and how it was slaughtered. Go by more of the feel than the temp.

 

And a 4 lb brisket, that's what we call a steak.
