So I'm going to make another attempt this weekend to smoke some brisket. I will follow the recommendations based on my last attempt. I will post pictures too. Here's a question. My little brother bought the brisket. He tells me it's 2 pieces attached that all together weigh about 13 lbs. I haven't seen the brisket but he is going to send me a few pics later tonight using his mobile phone. I highly doubt I can fit this size brisket into my 30" MES. Is it okay I cut them in half or will I lose all the juices during the smoke? Any suggestions or ideas?
