Because briskets can range anywhere from 5-15 pounds, the cook time for your specific cut of brisket will vary. Hot Tip: Briskets that are on the smaller side will usually take around 5-6 hours. If your brisket is tipping the scales a little higher, plan on a much longer smoke time of about 10-11 hours.
