Hey y’all, BBQ Dropout here with the answer to one of the most important questions in the world of barbecue: how long should you cook a 10-pound brisket in the oven?

In this post, I’ll break down the two main factors to consider when cooking any kind of brisket, regardless of the cooking device.

Factors to Consider When Cooking a Brisket 

When cooking a brisket, there are two main factors to consider: the temperature at which you cook it and the weight of your brisket. These two factors apply whether you’re cooking your brisket on a smoker, in an oven, or any other cooking device.

Weight of Your Brisket 

The weight of your brisket is the first factor to consider. On average, your brisket should take about one to two hours of cook time for every pound. For a 10-pound brisket cooked at a standard low and slow temperature range, it will take around 10 hours of cook time.

Temperature at Which You Cook Your Brisket

The second factor to consider is the temperature at which you cook your brisket. If you’re cooking your brisket in the oven at a hotter temperature of 275-300 degrees Fahrenheit, your cook time will be cut in half to around 5-7 hours.

Final Thoughts 

So there you have it, folks. A comprehensive guide on how long to cook a 10-pound brisket in the oven. Remember, the two main factors to consider are the weight of your brisket and the temperature at which you cook it. By following these guidelines, you’ll be able to estimate the cook time and ensure that your brisket turns out perfectly cooked every time. Happy cooking!
