Got the fire lit at 4:45, went back to bed, got up at 6 and put a 10# on. 225 for four hours, just opened to put the thermometer in and it's reading 170!? eek2 Checked thermo and it's right. Normal size brisket, never had this happen, guess I won't crutch it and see what happens. Anyone ever experience this?

Wrapped in butcher paper around noon, got to 201 and pulled it at 1:30. Never had a brisket cook this quick.

I've never had one cook that fast either, I know fattier/more marbled meats cook faster. Maybe you got a fattier brisket?

If it's a 1:7 smoker it will smoke much faster.

I'm guessing he's talking about a gear ratio, like in a fishing reel. scratch

Maybe your fire perked up a little more than 225 when you weren't looking?

I say if it eats good don't worry about it and food

It's a reference to a Gander Mountain thread.

It was real good. Not sure why it cooked so quick.

Lots of more experienced smokers than me but I've noticed it just depends on the brisket. Never had one cook that quick but i've had a few that have taken much longer than normal. Took 13-14 lb'r 17 hrs before.

I'm no expert either, just a fluke I guess.
