Question on cooking Brisket tomorrow for a graduation party.

I have a couple questions that hopefully someone can answer for me fairly soon. I got asked to smoke some brisket for a friend of ours. I have two 11pound whole packers. My first question is will that be enough to feed 30-40 people? My second question is if I smoke them at the same time on XL BGE, will I have to allow more time than the usual 1.5 hours per pound to cook or will they both cook at the same rate. Trying to time it just right so I can FTC then take it to the reception and slice it there. Thanks in advance for any and all advice.

  Side Note: (The reception starts at 1:00pm on Saturday, but we need to be there by 10:00am to help set up. That's why I figured I could just FTC it and take it with us at 10:00 and then start slicing a little before 1:00pm. I was planning on starting the cook on Friday afternoon around 3:00pm.
