I'm doing five briskets and chicken for 65 in May and my plan is to rub the brisket Thursday, cook, slice, sauce and pan it up on Friday and then chill it. I'll be grilling the chicken halves on Saturday and only want to have to reheat the brisket and serve it.
PS: I've done this same routine for the past two 4th of July celebrations for 200 and 400 people. I haven't poisoned anyone and haven't wasted any beef.
The difference here is your serving the next day, JG is serving the same day. if ya Gotta hold for more than 12hours, i would go with chilling it. but hes lookin at a 8-10 hour hold.
