Boston butt and brisket

I have a 5 pound Boston butt and a 5 pound brisket. I would like to cook them both at the same time in my large Big Green Egg, and, have them ready for sandwitches by game time. Any comments or suggestions?

    Cajun Boy,
    The Butt should take 14-15 hrs so get them going tonight. [p]Tim

    Cajun Boy,[p]I've done a combo like you are talking about twice in the past and it works pretty good. It would be best if you have 2 Polders, one for each piece. My experience has been that the brisket is the first to the finish line so if you have only one Polder, use it in the brisket then transfer it to the butt when the brisket is done.[p]I usually put both in the V-rack over a foil lined drip pan then straight on the cooking grate. Start late at night for dinner the next day. Just keep an eye on the brisket as it will finish first and you DON'T want to overcook it.
