    Warp speed brisket?

    So, after not doing one for a while, I got my hands on a nice looking Costco brisket this weekend. Good sized, maybe 10-11 lbs. Fired up the KBQ to about 240ish and off I went.

    Three hours later, I'm at the stall. Three hours. How did that happen? Full disclosure, it's wrapped now and still cooking so I don't know how it will turn out. But I'm confused. I know people say the KBQ cooks fast, but has anyone else seen a brisket go so fast on one?

    I bang em out in 5 hours sometimes. But cooking at 325-350. Make sure they get time to rest and hold at a high IT to soften up.

      I find cooking at 250’ish that brisket will hit 155 in 3-4 hours, general rule of thumb. I rarely wrap, and only late in the cook, so mine take another 8+ hours :-)

        Yeah when I hit 150 after three hours I considered not wrapping. I've never done a brisket without wrapping and was curious. But then I figured, with my luck, it would go in the other direction and would end up taking way too long so I threw it in some foil...
