Default What is your average cooking time hours/pound for brisket & butts?

I have read the "guidelines" for brisket and butts are 1-1.5hr/lb for brisket and ~2hr/lb for butts. I went back through my last 1/2 dozen cook logs and found when I am cooking in a range of 220-250 my 5-6lb brisket flats are taking 2-2.2hr/lb and the 4.5-6lb butts are similar. I had one small brisket (3lb) take less than an hour/lb. Anyone else have any results that are similar or completely different?
