Brisket is a cut of meat from the breast or lower chest of beef or veal. Briskets can weigh between 12 and 22 pounds so smoking times can range from 8 to 16 hours depending on size, temperature, and the specific brisket. The general rule of thumb is to plan on between 30 and 60 minutes per pound. For example, a 16-pound brisket cooked at 275 degrees Fahrenheit will take between 10 and 12 hours. The entire process from trimming, injection, seasoning, and cooking will take between 18 and 20 hours.[1]
