Brisket Smoker Recipes FAQ’s
How Much Brisket Per Person?
Generally speaking it’s good to aim for 1/2 pound of brisket per person, depending on sides and the appetite of your guests. Kid will usually eat a bit less than that, and some adults with bigger appetites might eat up to 3/4 pound of brisket.
How Long to Smoke a Brisket at 225?
If your BBQ smoker is set to 225F it will cook at around 1.5 to 2 hours per pound (0.45kg). If your trimmed brisket weighs 10 pounds the cook time will be around 15 hours. When smoking you should always check internal temperature for final accuracy, as the conditions will vary each time you cook.
Internal Temp for Brisket
The ideal internal temperature for brisket is 203°F or 95°C, but a brisket can be done in the range of 200-210°F. Anything beyond 210°F is potentially overcooked. Also keep in mind that the brisket will continue to cook for a while after it is removed from the grills meaning that the internal temp will go up 5-10°F before eventually cooling down.
You may wish to take the brisket off the grills at around 195°F for this reason.
When Should I Wrap my Brisket?
Wrap your brisket around 165-170°F internal temperature. This will ultimately shorten the overall cook time, help you avoid the stall, and keep your brisket moist and juicy.
