I am smoking a 3.5 lb brisket right now. I've got all the coals shoved to the side of a Weber kettle with the brisket on the other side. Got a pan of water underneath it. It is starting to look good.

How long does it need to stay on.

I usually stick a meat therometer into a piece of meat, and cook to the whatever doness the that is marked on the dial.

You can't cook off the Prions that cause mad cow disease, Babe.

It would probably be about 3 hours.

I brown mine in a pan then make a tinfoil tent over it and let it cook for a few hours like that.

We usually have 9+ Lb. briskets though so it take a few hours more.

It's more of a temperature thing, than it is a time thing.

Brisket take longer to cook than 3 hours if you want it tender.

Smoke it for 3 hours with some hickory. Then wrap it in heavy duty tin foil and put it back in for another 3 hours to cook in its own juices.

dont know what temp you are at but I generally cook my brisket about 11 hours at 225 to 250 degrees, they are usually about 7 to 10 lbs.
