Yeah . I would take a length of the brisket to see how much room you need . Try to keep it as flat as possible . Sister 2 racks together to make that length . One side high , other side low in the smoker .Never thought of trying to angle the rack, do you mean putting one side of the rack on a rung above?
I think that is a really good idea!!!What if you tried the rack on an angle to get the length you need ?
Yeah that should work too.Pretty much what I was thinking except I would put the side over the heat up
I would like test this out with my next one when it’s just me and my wife eating it, lol. I rarely use the bottom shelf because it does get a little hotter since the element is closer. I normally put a foil pan there since the gen 2 has a smaller one.Nice!
I would definitely practice with a different brisket. You don't want to botch the super expensive one.
As the brisket cooks it will shrink to about 70% of the size it is in the picture. It would be nice to know it will do. A test brisket or two will give you a clear picture of what to expect.
Finally if you can keep the brisket from touching the walls you will avoid a mess in the bottom of your smoker. I foil over my drip pan and as long as meat is not against the walls, the mess stays strictly with my drip pan :)
Let us know what you decide!
