I always use a water pan when cooking in my Humphrey's Down East Beast.

No worries my Humphrey's cooks like a dream, always perfect, as long as you let it work for you instead of letting it working you.

What temp do you normally cook at? The time per lb shouldn't really change based on the size of the brisket I don't think, but it could possibly stall a little longer... Aside from the stall I don't think your times per lb will change.

If you're worried about time I would cook it at 300ish start to finish and also wrap at some point. Will be under an hr per lb at 300 for sure.

I just did my first brisket on my Humphreys smoker and I used the water pan. I watched Franklins YouTube brisket video as a good starting point. I cooked mine at about 250. I attached my cook chart but keep in mind that mine was just the flat.

How big? If it is close to 20 pounds, I would go 280F ish. Under that, you can go hotter.

In my experience, briskets over 16 pounds do take longer at a given temperature. Add 10 minutes per pound over 17 pounds
