Yes, it is a long cook time. But I've found out thru trial and error this system has worked best for me. The brisket always turns out tender and great smokey (but not too smokey) flavor. Every time I've tried to up the temp and cook it faster, it never turned out as tender.

I also like that I can get it started on a Saturday late morning, wrap it in heavy foil (double wrap is best) just before we go to bed, and it's ready anytime we want on Sunday afternoon or evening.
