Brisket/Butt Stacking

edited 1:09AM in EggHead Forum
I'm cooking a brisket and two Boston Butts tonight. Should I stack the brisket on top of the butts or on the bottom? I remember reading something a few weeks ago, but can't remeber which way.


  • VinoRosso,[p]I just finished that exact cook about 2 hours ago. I put the brisket on the bottom and the butts up close to the dome. The brisket cooked slower, despite its thin shape. By morning, the butts had almost caught up with the brisket's internal.[p]Final time: 12 hours for the brisket. 13 hours for one butt, and 14.5 hours on the other one. (much bigger)[p]I haven't cut into the brisket yet, but one thing I can assure you of: the brisket remained moist from all the fat dripping down from the butts.

    I just did this same cook, and it turned out great!
