    Any suggestions for smoking two briskets at once in my 14? Should I put the thermometer in the top one or the bottom one? How much longer should I expect the cooking to take? Yes, I know I should base it on time.... but some approximation would be good. I expect to have two cryovac briskets that are about 9lb each.

    I would recommend putting the thermometer in the top one - furthest from the heat. When it hits temp, both are done.

    I would estimate 90 minutes per pound. Even for two.

    So, if both are 10 lbs, roughly 18 hours. Start the night before, cook all night, eat next day.

    Enjoy!

    Yea, I agree with DReeves. Cook the brisket long and slow. I've had my best luck planning on 22 hours. I start approximately 22 hours before I want to eat at 200 overnight. Next morning turning it up to 225, and then the last 4-6 hours at 250. Pull it out when the internal temp is 195 or so. I prefer it falling apart vs sliced. Unwrapped the entire time, but with a small pan of water for moisture.

    Well, my briskets turned out to be just ver 7lb each. They didn't have any bigger ones. I think I'll go for an 18hr or so smoke. I'll be serving at 4pm or so Sunday so counting an hour for resting I'll start it off at 8 or 9pm Saturday at 200 and see where it gets in the morning. I guess I'll try the moisture pan, too.
