Kentucky Derby Brisket

My brother in-law moved back to Texas after two years in Louisville KY. He's throwing a Kentucky Derby party in two weeks and has decided to serve brisket as the main meat. I'm honored that he has asked me to do the brisket on the egg. Having never cooked this on the egg I'm in need of some eggsperiance from this crowd. The details follow:[p]HOW MUCH TO COOK? The expected crowd will be about 40, evenly split between the sexes.[p]WHO"S GOT A RECIPE? A Kentucky inspired brisket would be ideal.[p]HOW LONG SHOULD THE RECOMMENDED AMOUNT OF BRISKET TAKE TO COOK? Serving time is set for 5:00 pm, the party starts at 3:00 pm and I don't want to miss any of it. Can I plan on having it done at say 2:50, bring it cooked to to the party and serve it in an electric warming pan thingy?[p]Thanks, Stuart

    I think it would be more fun if you took the egg to his house and cooked there. After you took the brisket off, you could put them in a cooler wrapped in foil and a towel, and then do 3 spatchcocked chickens too! I did this last fall so that we would have beef and chicken. I only did a 6-7 lb brisket. I wonder, could you cook multiple briskets on a sturdy rib rack, turning them on edge?

    Stuart,[p]For me the Kentucky Derby has always been a gala event! Why not use a bourbon based barbecue sauce on your brisket and don't forget the mint juleps!
