I purchased a Wagyu Gold grade brisket from Snake River Farms for the 4th of July and it is an absolute monster. It arrived and I was shocked, 23lbs of marbled mass. I've cooked 12-16lb briskets in the past, but nothing even remotely close to this beast. My question is this: Is it safe to run a Traeger for upwards of 30 hours? I am figuring 1.5 hours per lb. Any advice is welcomed.

Thanks,

Einherjar

I"ve never cooked Wagyu and am jealous of you. :) . Having said that, I would think 1.5 hours per pound would be way off. It is not a tough cut of meat like a brisket. Just the opposite, right? You could slice it in 2" thick steaks and cook them quickly. Couldn't do that with a brisket. If you're going to cook that giant beast whole, probably best to research recipes online so you don't ruin that expensive purchase.

I'm excited to cook it. I do have a recipe that I've developed myself that works extremely well for that Central Texas flavor. I've cooked a dozen or so USDA Prime briskets from Creekstone Farms, but this is my first Wagyu, and my very first MONSTER(23lbs omg). Just concerned about the long cook time really.

I got mine for $268 after taxes. It is a MONSTER though, I can't stress that enough. I'll post a picture tonight before I trim it.
