5lbs Brisket hot and fast.

Looking at cooking two 5lb brisket's. Starting temp 275. How long you think it take? Looking for hot and fast due to time.

The brisket points I've done recently were hot smoked at around 325F.  I wrapped them at 175F IT.  They took a total of about an hour a pound to get to a 200F internal temp. At 275F you're probably looking at about 1 hr 15 minutes per pound for a 5 lb brisket (smoking two makes no difference).

I ended up smoking it at 275 for three hours and it was reading 190. I then placed in the BBQ at 350 for another 2hrs and got it up to 199. Ended up being really tender and caked like pulled pork. I ended up liking it and the rest of the family did also. No smoke ring but good smoke flavor.

That's great that it turned out so good.


I have been wanting to try the hot & fast method for some time.


I guess when you have been doing it one way for so long it's hard to change & try something new.


Especially with an expensive piece of meat.


I guess I'll have to try it on a small brisket just to satisfy my curiosity.


Nice smoke!


Wish you had some pics to go along with your thread.
