    Its hard to say because like you said without seeing it there is now way to know how much fat you are going to be trimming off of it. How many people are you looking to serve?

    we have about 50 people in our dealership, i was thinking of getting another one, plus i have a pork shoulder in the freezer i can make also.

    OH man 50 people. Yea I don't think 1 would cut it at all. I don't have any experience feeding that big of a crowd but many people on here do and they can give you an expert opinion on how much meat you need. Are you paying for the meat? If not I would get plenty as leftovers are always great.

    i was talking with my office manager, we figured 1/2 lb per person, so i may smoke 3 total and have left overs

    i was also doing some research, i'm figuring 2 hours per lb to account for "rest" period once they reach 205.  should i allow a lil more time if im doing 3 in my MES 40?  i plan on setting it at 225 degrees and starting it monday night at work around 5:30 pm and hopefully by 9 am or so tuesday it will be at 205 or so after i douple wrap in foil

    Allow for an extra 2 hrs. just to be safe - you can always keep them hot in a towel lined cooler for up to 6+ hrs. no problem. The other option is to have them already cooked and just reheat them.

    one concern, once it hits 165 internal temp and say its at 3 or 4 am, and i dont foil them at that time will they dry out if i foil them say at 180?

    i may start them up monday morning and pull them monday night, and let them sit in a cooler until tuesday morning and pull them at that time and place the meat in a couple disposable trays and keep them warm in the MES

    I guess it depends on how hungry they are.  [​IMG]  Seriously, for 50 people I would do 3 to be on the safe side. They tend to shrink up as they smoke. What time are you planning on eating? What time can you get to work to check the smoker? Why not start them at home after work Monday, then if you have to foil them in the middle of the night you can. If their not done by the time you have to leave for work, just wrap them in towels, throw the MES in your car & finish them at work, or get to work a little late & finish them at home. The other option is to just foil them when you get to work. A lot of guys don't foil them at all. If your worried about them drying out, just put a few slices of bacon on top.

    lol Al, i wondereing the same thing,  i was planning on having the food ready for lunch on tuesday.  plus i have a 8 week old lab puppy that likes to get up at least 3 or 4 times a night, so i can run down to work any time during the night.  i was actually planning on starting the brisket on monday morning around 6 am.  so if i figured correctly 2 hours per lb.  roughly 18 hours..at those figures it should be done around midnight on monday.  so i was gonna wrap them and place in a cooler til the next morning.  pull them and place in some disposable containers and place back in the smoker with a lil juice to keep warm.
     
  12. It really depends on the brisket. For New Years Eve I did a 10# brisket for 9 people and had some left over for supper the next day for me and my wife. Last weekend I did a 13.5# brisket for 7 people and had just enough left over for supper the next day for me and my wife. The difference was the size of the point. The 10# brisket had a very small point, where the 13.5# brisket had a very large point. I usually don't slice and serve the point for meals, I reserve it for burnt ends. It usually is too fatty to serve sliced as part of the meal. Just my opinion.

    Biggest thing on not drying out a brisket is keep the temps low - 210-220°. The hotter you cook it the more it wants to turn all the juices into steam and drive them out of the meat. There are lots of folks at competitions that don't foil their briskets at all and still have a great moist brisket, it's all about keeping the heat low and steady, and having patience. If you try to rush a brisket by even a little bit you will regret it.

    I think your idea of cooking Monday is the best. If you plan on keeping them foiled for more than 5 hrs. pull the brisket out of the smoker when it hits 190° and foil it then. If you were to let it go to 200°-210° and then foiled it for that long you run the chance of the meat getting a little bit mushy.

    Good luck and don't forget to have somebody take pictures! [​IMG]

    i started to trim the fat caps off 3 briskets and ended up with about 22-24 lbs of meat.  applied a thin layer of EVOO and applied the rub.  placed in the fridge for about 36 hours.  got to work about 6 am this morning and fired up the AMNS with mesquite and set the temp  at 215 degrees.  the 1st pic is when i put the meat in and the 2nd pic is about 3 hours later when i put the temp probes in..

    the briskets are looking and smelling awesome, we are at 5 1/2 hours into the smoke at 215 degrees and all three pieces are within 3 degrees of one another, 155-158 degrees internal temp.  i'm gonna double wrap with foil at 165 and take to 195 or so and put in a cooler to continue to cook and break the fibers down.  ill pull it at 205 internal temp and reheat tomorrow with some beef broth.
