Cooking Temp / Times
« on: February 05, 2008, 05:34:53 AM »
I typically smoke my briskets at 200 - 225 for 2 hours per pound w/ great success.  I read a lot about higher cook temps and shorter cook times.  Any opionions on this.

there are a lot of opinions on this.  some like low and slow, some like hot and fast, some like it somewhere in the middle.  i tend to cook mine somewhere between 225* - 250*.  the answer is there is no right answer - just whatever works for you.

now how 'bout hopping on over to the new member section and properly introducin' yourself so the rest of the gang can say hello..... :wink:

I usually cook mine a lot like SG described.  I've thought about pushing those temps up a bit, just to see how it goes, though.
