So, I am cooking 13 briskets today. It has started to pour, ended up slicin the finger to the bone and now I stumble upon a question.

I started cooking at around 11a this morning. Should be done by about 12p tonight. About ready to wrap. If I am serving this stuff tomorro around 11a, what is the best way to keep warm or reheat?

I wouldn't try to cool/reheat them as it would be almost impossible to do so safely without the proper equipment. I would probably wrap them in foil and keep them in an oven or smoker at about 180-190 degrees until you get within 4-6 hours of serving, then transfer them to a cooler or cambro to hold until you are ready to slice them.
I also wouldn't slice them any earlier than you need to as the slices usually begin to lose their moisture very quickly when sliced.

awesome. I will definately do that roksmith. Here's hoping 13 briskets fit in the oven. Never had that much in there.

hmm just thought about something. How long can they stay at 150 in the oven.?

In a 150 oven you can hold them till you need them.

I would not keep them in a 180-190 oven...even in foil. Why? Because that's just way overkill. A temp of 150 will be fine if you can get it that low.
