I have a 10.5 lb. brisket to smoke for our family christmas this weekend and was wondering if it is ok to cut the brisket in half or if I should just figure on cooking the whole thing all night. I figure it will be about a 15 hour smoke?? I have a masterbuilt electric smoker which works very well so I am not worried about keeping temp. right overnight. Just didn't know if I would get more tender meat by using 2 smaller pieces. Any suggestions appreciated!!!
