Cooking Two Large Briskets At Once
I'm smoking two 15 pound briskets in my XL that I need to have ready for carving by 6:00 PM Saturday. I have only smoked one brisket at a time in my short egging career and all of them were between 7 and 9 pounds (both took about 18 hours). Does doing two at a time increase the smoking time? I'm trying to guesstimate how long to smoke them at 225 degrees to reach about 195 degrees internal. Do you think if I put them on at 6:00 PM Friday night that 24 hours will be enough or should I start earlier? I appreciate your thoughts - I really don't want 30 plus hungry people (with knives) waiting on dinner.
Two XL BGEs - So Happy!!!!
