Will anything bad happen if I split a 9 lbs brisket into two halves before I smoke it in order to get it done quicker? What kind of effect could this have on the meat? I have done this with pork butt roasts that my wife had the groc. store split into 4 to 5 lbs chunks, and my pork always turned out very good this way.
