How long to smoke brisket at 220
If you’re wondering how long it takes to smoke any particular brisket at around 220°F, then you’re in luck. A lot of the times, pit masters will smoke briskets a little bit hotter, at around 225°F.
That usually takes about 1 pound per hour to fully cook through any size of brisket.
For briskets that are smoked at 220°F, use the same estimation as you would with 225°F, with a 1 pound per hour cook through rate.
That’s simply because at 220°F, there is really not much variance between that and just 5° hotter in temperature. This estimation of course can be applied to not only 220°F, but all the way up to around 250°F.
As with everything else though, test results for yourself and come up with your own ratios.
Smoking a brisket at 200°F should take about 1 pound per hour to fully cook through.
There is not much variance between 220°F and 225°F, so it is safe to assume that the length of time it should take for a brisket smoked at both temperatures to be roughly the same.
