Preparing brisket in advance

Hello All,

I am going to smoke packer trimmed brisket for 27 people this Christmas.  I have an XL egg.  I haven't done a brisket yet, but am assuming these should take around 15-18 hours to cook.  My first question is, how many briskets do you recommend for this number of people?  I'm just not sure how much waste there is.  Also, if I smoke it ahead of time, what is the best way to freeze and reheat the brisket so it is still great tasting and moist?  Thanks in advance for your time!
