Default Monster Brisket

From time-to-time there are posts here regarding the biggest briskets you've ever seen/cooked. Here's a pic we just received from Gil Taft of a brisket he used at his class this weekend (http://gatewaybbqstore.com/cooking-c...cooking-class/)

At 26 lbs., it's a monster! Can for scale :)

It would be interesting to see how long that large of a brisket takes to cook, but there seems to be a point where the ratio of brisket size to cook time doesn't continue at the same per/lb rate. If that makes sense.

When I cooked that 22lber I also cooked an 18lber and they 22 actually finished first.

I would gladly conduct an experiment to see how long it would take to cook one. Where can I send my shipping info?

I've done a 15 pounder that trimmed down to 14 and a 17.5 that went to 16.5. That thing is huge...
