how long to cook beef brisket in orion cooker

Unfortunately, I do not have enough specific information to write a comprehensive article on how long to cook beef brisket in an Orion cooker, as this appliance is quite niche and there are limited resources available online.

However here are some general tips I can provide on cooking brisket based on typical methods

  • Brisket generally requires “low and slow” cooking methods to break down the tough connective tissues and become tender. Cooking at a low temperature (225-250°F) for an extended period of time is recommended.

  • Most conventional ovens require about 1-1.5 hours per pound of brisket when cooking at ~250°F. So a 10 lb brisket may take 10-15 hours.

  • Using a cooking thermometer and monitoring internal temp rather than cook time is best. Brisket is done at 195-205°F.

  • Keeping the brisket moist is crucial to prevent drying out. This can be done by spritzing/mopping with a sauce or broth wrapping at stall point and resting before slicing.

  • Allowing the brisket to rest, wrapped in foil, for 1-2 hours after cooking allows juices to redistribute for a tender and juicy result.

Orion Cooker with Brisket


How long to cook brisket on an Orion cooker?

After receiving my Orion Cooker I have cooked two 6-pound chickens in 90 minutes. I did three racks of pork ribs in 90 minutes and then last weekend I cooked a 5-pound brisket in just 3-hours! Usually you have to cook or smoke a brisket for at least an hour per pound if not more.

How many hours does it take to cook a beef brisket?

Our general rule of thumb is to plan on between 30 and 60 minutes per pound when learning how to cook a brisket. For example, a 16-pound brisket cooked at 275 degrees Fahrenheit will take between 10 and 12 hours. The entire process from trimming, injection, seasoning, and cooking will take between 18 and 20 hours.

Is brisket better in slow cooker or pressure cooker?

Because pressure cookers utilise steam to cook food very quickly, they are the perfect choice for cooking meals such as beef brisket that can take a much longer time than slow cookers, yet provide almost identical results.

Can you overcook brisket in a slow cooker?

Can you overcook brisket in a slow cooker? Cooking the brisket for too long can result in a lackluster texture and flavor. Make sure to check on the brisket starting at seven hours to see how it’s progressing. Cooking it longer (such as 10 hours) will not necessarily result in better meat.
