4.11lb Brisket flat... how long?
When should I start checking for 'doneness'?

Online I read around 1.25hrs per pound on a flat... does that generally seem right?

It is done when it is done.
Almost every peice cooks up different.

There is a great tutorial on our site.

As to time--it is temp dependent.
At 210-225, maybe about 2hrs/lb.
At 250-275, maybe about 1.5hrs/lb.
At 300 +, maybe 1hr/lb.

All those are "Guesstimates" and will vary all over the place.

I suggest you read the thread above.

Good Luck

60 - 90 minutes per pound is the general rule of thumb, but small briskets like that can take considerable longer per pound. I don't cook any brisket smaller than 12 lbs if I can help it because the small ones are just too unpredictable.
