<p />It seems like I'm always facing that choice. So I decided to do both. The other advantage that I've found is that you can use the butt to naturally baste the brisket.

    Great choice....
    Ok, three probes. One for the butt, one for the brisket and one for the??????? Grate temp?

    Wardster,[p]Grate temp it is. I just have it poking through the brisket, but over the drip pan so that is doesn't read the direct heat. I cook at between 205* and 210* grate temp.

    mad max beyond eggdome,[p]I have the butt rubbed down with some Jamaican jerk seasoning, and brushed it with some mustard.[p]The brisket is rubbed with Yum Yum steak seasoning, and coated with a mixture of A1 Bold & Spicy Steak Sauce and horseradish.
