Smoking Time For Cut Brisket

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I tried doing a search for the answer, but didn't notice anything so thought I would ask.

 

I'm smoking a 17 lbs brisket for Saturday and I know when I do it whole I am looking at about 1.5 hours per pound.

However, this sucker is just too big to fit in my Bradley and I'm thinking best thing is to cut it in half and smoke the two pieces at the same time.

 

Will I still be looking at about 1.5  hours per pound for the total? Or is it 1.5 hours per pound per small piece?

 

I'm trying to figure if I should give myself 24 hours, or 12 for the process.

It's going to be per piece. However, depending on how you cut it, one piece probably will be thicker than the other. 

 

The thick one will take a little longer to cook.

 

If you have 2- 8 pound pieces, then you would figure between 12-16 hours including the rest period.

 

I always figure 2 hours per pound just to be on the safe side.

 

Hope this helps,

 

Al
