I just recently purchased a Masterbuilt Electric Smoker Mod# 20070810. It is the 40" smoker. I have already smoked pork ribs and chicken, in it did quite well if I may say so. However, I was looking on the Masterbuilt website to see what temp should I smoke a brisket at, but could not find the anything. Anybody got any tips or suggestions? Thanks in advance.

MES temp

I set mine at 250 deg pretty much for everything, Have set it at 275 deg and as low as 225 deg. w/ mes set at 250. It maintains 225 / 230 pretty well. set at 275 , it maintains 240 / 245.
Some do a brisket low and slow, 225 till internal of 185 .wrap w/ foil and back on till200.
Some use higher heat . and some use foil pan and higher heat to cut down on cooking times.
Just remember a brisket will stall and it may stall for hours . make sure you allow extra time for this.
