The XL is 24 inches in diameter. Does anyone know of a Rack that will hold a Packer's cut of Brisket which is about 20 inches in length?

    Why not cook it directly on the cooking grid?

    Every recipe I read says place on a rack????

    You're an Egghead now! Those rules don't apply! :evil:

    Just be sure you have the plate setter in (wrapped with aluminum foil) and a drip pan. Then you are good to go and can put the brisket on the grid.
  • Agree on above..

    no reed for a rack at all. Direct on the grate.

    Were those recipes possibly talking about cooking it on an indoor conventional oven ? If so, maybe it was to ensure the brisket was not sitting in a pool of it's own fat.
