I Started the smoke at noon today planing a late supper ...... I foiled at 160 - 165 (3hrs) then decided to check the temp at 4:15 and wouldn't youknow it the dang thing was done, 201 - 205 degrees F. 4 hours and 15 min for a 13 pounder ! I have done several briskets now and they always take 7 - 8 hours so I am supprised at this. The temps were between 200 - 225 with an occasional 250 260 when I added more wood (just like always) so I don't get why this was such a short cook. Will add pics later.
