I know its well ahead of time, but got a nice 5.6kg brisket(12lb) from the butcher today. Having Christmas dinner(on boxing day) with the neighbors, so thought we'd deviate from the usual turkey and ham. Anyways into the fridge for some aging. I'm thinking about cutting it in half as it won't fit in the smoker completely as is. Is there any down side to this? Preferred way to do it? my other option is to leave it whole, throw it on the propane grill and use foil packs to smoke. EDIT nevermind, found a couple posts about not cutting, will try and get it to fit by drapping it over something, it should just fit.
