Brisket & Butt - Son's 3rd Birthday

Planning on doing a brisket and butt for my son's 3rd birthday on Saturday.  Need to have the food ready by 3:00 PM.  What time would you put on the egg?

Brisket is about 10 lbs (packer, but actually seems to be a bit light on the fat; almost seems trimmed).  Butt is about 9 lbs.

Have a large; so butt will go above the brisket on the adjustable rig.


  • That son of yours has a pretty big appetite!
  • Can't comment on the Brisket...Butt @ 250 dome figure on 1 1/2 to 2 hrs per lb. Pull @ 195* internal. Wrap in HD alum foil and put in a cooler wrapped in towels till your ready to pull. Put a towel in the bottom of the cooler. The butt will keep in the cooler for up to 4hrs. Happy B'day to the young'un.

    +1 on what Buckdodger said, but i would put it on at least 20 hours before. Wondering if the food will be done in time is not something you should have to worry about on that day.

    All to get cheaper brisket!
