2 pound brisket is most likely trimmed to within an nch of it's life BUT... I would still throw it on the cooker - but I would probably give it just a little time in the smoke then foil her up with a little liquid. Moose is right on when it's done. A 2 pounder may take about 3 or so hours cooked at 230* or so - remember, this is BBQ so time is relative - don't rush it and give yourself plenty of time for it wo be done. You can always hold cooked meet in a warm cooler.
I would also definately put on the ribs at the same time. I would put them over the brisket - I like to let pork drip onto beef. If you are doing both together I would go with apple and or cherry, mesquite seems a little heavy for ribs - of course I am assuming they are pork ribs...
So - good luck and let us know hiw this works out for you.
Post a puctire or two of that brisket - let's see it.
