brisket smoke

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

going to try a brisket in the morning...anyone have a good recommendation on how long to add smoke?  10 lb packer i was thinking 4-5 hours. do not want anything to overpowering just that subtle smoke flavor we all want. i usually do my birds with 1-2 hrs smoke.

Mine stays in the smoke open on the grate until its about 165ish then it gets wrapped. As long as you aren't making steam engine smoke it should be fine up to this temp.


Good Luck tomorrow.


If you have been to smokey in the past, maybe try wrapping it about 140.

Well, Birds and Beef are 2 different animals. About 4-5 hours seems good for the Beef and a couple of hours for the Bird.
