5lb Brisket?
I'm planning on smoking a 6lb brisket at 250f in my wsm on saturday. How long should i plan for the cook, including resting?

Low and slow like that I'd plan 9 hrs with rest time. But depending on the brisket it may take longer to get probe tender.
Good luck

Thanks! I'll try and remember to post some pics of the result :)

75-90 minutes per pound as a rough guideline, but I've found that smaller cuts actually take longer per pound, so it will probably be closer to 90. Also, allow two hours for a nice rest after cooking. It helps the juices recirculate and give you a buffer in case the cook takes longer.
