I have two 16lb briskest on my BGE, the are overlapping each other. Is that ok? If I setup the swing grate on top then the one brisket overhangs.

    totally fine. It will change the cooking time but not by any amount worth worrying about. 
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    FWIW-I would go with the "probe in and out of the thickest part of the flat with no resistance" as the finish indicator-brisket is quite fickle with regard to nailing the finish with temperature.  But each behaves on its own...YMMV-
