“Boss: You were gone 7 hours to smoke? Me: It was a brisket.”

Some employees take smoking breaks—usually for cigarette smoking. A joke was posted on Instagram by iamyarddad on October 26, 2023:
 
“Boss: You were gone 7 hours to smoke?
Me: It was a brisket.”

 
Related brisket jokes include “Doctor: Do you smoke? Me: Yes. Mostly brisket, some ribs,” “Smoke brisket, not meth” and “What kind of rolling papers do you need to smoke brisket?”
