How long to you cook a brisket in a slow cooker?

I have a brisket cooking and have no idea how long to cook it for.

Slow cookers are a great way to prepare brisket. However, how long you cook it depends on the brisket size. Cooking on the low setting, a brisket under 3 pounds will cook within 6-8 hours and larger briskets (above 4 pounds) will take 8-11 hours to cook.

When I do this in my slow cooker, I lay the brisket down fat side up on top of a bed of cut potatoes. I then add in 1/2 cup of water, a package of onion soup mix, and a sliced onion. I cook it over low heat for at least 8 hours. The longer the better!

It takes about a half hour per pound of brisket. Cooking time varies though depending on what you have the slow cooker set on. If it is on high I would say 1/2 hr. If you keep it on low give it an hour a pound.That is my best answer.
