Kidding aside, that would be my biggest worry about cooking on hooks. I know that if I cook a 12 lb brisket to my desired doneness, that its probably gonna weigh about 8 lbs when its done. When that meat gets tender I can really see it having trouble holding togethet around that hook. Now if we're talking multiple hooks in one piece of meat, that would make more sense.
