    I take my tri-tip to about 130 which is about 3 hours or so depending on the size then put them on a red hot grill for a few minutes a side for med. Then foil for about 45 minutes or longer and you will be good to go. http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/showthread.php?t=73616 theres a post of some I have done.

    As for a brisket and how many it will feed. That depends on how hungry people are and how much they eat. If you figure 8oz a person then a 9lb finished product will only server 18 people.

    Hope this helps.
