It's just my 2 cents here. Feel free to disagree and I'm sure Phil will chime in later.
Please bear in mind that I have cooked at a WHOLE ONE FARKEN comp - and I didn't really cook - I just hung out for my Master CBJ requirement.
Nonetheless, our friends in Texas like to cook brisket high (temp) and short (time) - and they turn out a good product. Also if you start with a 5 pound flat it cooks a bit faster than a 17 pound packer. I don't want to say anything bad about our friends who show up Saturday AM- but do they walk?
