Reply to "24 lb Prime Brisket"

Thanks so much.

I followed the Incredible Brisket recipe and put it in at 9pm at 215F.  It was done at 1pm.  I moved the temp up to 220 at 6am.   I can't quite figure out why Prime briskets are cooking so quick.  Two weeks age I did a 14lb prime brisket, put it in at 11 pm at 225 and it was done in 5 hrs.  I was guessing it would be done somewhere between 1-3 the next day.  Imagine the temp alarms going off at 4, waking you up and finding out your brisket is done.  Well I guess that is a small price to pay for a great smoked brisket.  If anyone can explain this, I would be more than interested in finding out the reason why this is happening.  Temp in the smoker is within 3 degrees.
