Default I'm tired and brisket is not done!!

I've been cooking these three 12 pound briskets since 6 this morning and they are just now (10 PM) at 160 - 165 degrees.

I wrapped them in foil, moved them inside to the oven and kicked it to 300 degrees. I cooked them all day at 225.

Any ideas on how long it will take to get these babies to 190? I need my beauty sleep!

Where did you measure your cooking temp at? I started A single 12 # Full Packer at 230 this morning and it sat in the drum at 275-300 the whole time, and it was done at 10 AM.

My guess would be that while the temp says 225 where you are measuring, the meat is not getting that high of temps.

At 225* I would expect them to take 12-14 hrs. The 12-14 lb range is my favorite size. I've NEVER had 1 finished in under 12 hrs, and add to that "resting time" it always take 14-16 hrs for a brisket that size when I cook it.

Once you break that 165* mark it will probably only take another 1-2 hrs to be at 190. You're almost there.

I did a 14 lb (before I trimmed it) packer this weekend in one of my WSMs. Flat on top rack, point on bottom, 250 dome temp. At 10 hours in I had to foil the flat for the last 2 hours to get it finished in time.

The thing about meat, is that it's done when it's done.

Takes a longer time to make brisket jerky.
