Smoking a Brisket

Everyone says you have to do a brisket. I have found that cooking times
on my 48 deluxe are less that most of the posted times I have seen on
the web.  Does anyone have approx. times when using a Lang pit?? Very Happy

Your cook times are really going to depend on your temperature.

Just out of curiosity, I tried the hot and fast method the other day.  Everyone loved it, but it is different than low and slow for sure.

For the hot and fast, bring the Lang heat up to 350 and put the brisket in.  Let it stay there about 2 hours (you are looking for an internal temp of 155-160).  

Then put the brisket in a pan with beef broth and cover.  (I had the pans under the brisket from the beginning so they caught the drippings and then i added some broth).  Let that go for about 2 hours more at the same temp.  Take the brisket out and put it back on the Lang for about 20 minutes.  Then take it off, wrap it in foil and let it stay in a cooler for about 2 hours to rest.

If you want to go low and slow, cook it at 225-230 until the internal temp hits 185-190.  Then take it off, wrap in foil and let it rest for 1-2 hours.  

Either way, you wont be disapointed provided you prepare it properly and keep an eye on your temps both on the grill and the meat.

brisket tips are excellent.

my times above are for 275-ish.

5 hrs in the smoke, 4 more hours foiled.

Open and slice.  

Add one hour and you can pull it like pork --- you have to, because you won't be able to slice it.   Wink

What about the pork butts? How many hrs in foil after smoke?

I only smoke the brisket flats now. I put 11 of the on the other day, ran the temp between 225 and 250 for six hours, bumped it up to 275 to 300 and wrapped them after they got to 180, about 8 hours or so cooking time. Took them to 200 and then put them in the cambro till I needed them.

I've always cooked briskets fat side down, but I also wrap after 5-7 hours (depending on color).

I want to get away from wrapping and cook it more 'traditionally'.

A couple of questions:
- Fat side up or down? (I'm leaning to up so it bastes)
- Cook temp: 250?

Thanks!

I have a Lang 60 Deluxe

For Traditional cooking, I put the fat side up so as it cooks the fat will go down through the meat. This will keep the brisket moist and help tenderize it , too. I cook it at 225-250.

Cook times can very, that's is why I use a temp. probe to watch the temp. as it cooks, that way you don't over or under cook your meats.
