Brisket AND Butt...

I'm getting geared up for a Fourth of July extravaganza and I'm thinking of doing both a brisket and a butt on the same cook. I've never attempted that before, but since cooking temps are the same I'm thinking/hoping it will work.

I just wanted to check to see who's done it and who recommends it. One question in particular is the wood for smoke. I usually use hickory for the pork and pecan for the brisket. I think the hickory might be too strong for the brisket so I'm thinking of going with just pecan... or possibly apple or cherry. I'm open to suggestions.

Thanks in advance and I hope everyone has a great/safe 4th.

    Hickory will be fine, it is beef. I like apple and you could certainly use it. Use the same temp and figure 1.5hr/lb for the brisket, so it will need to go on after the butt (if similar weights)

    It will be easy.
