If you need to do separate cooks, I would leave the one for day 2 whole and reheat it in a slow oven. Some folks will tell you to vacuseal then boil in the bag. That works well too.
IMHO it is always better the day it's cooked, but I am also a big fan of sleep...
No I'm doing 2 for the first cook and 1 for the second one as so far there are only 12 people. I'm thinkin you're right and I'll have to do 2 cooks

I put a thermometer in the thickest part. For you I would set the temp at 160 and check. If not probing tender reset to 180 and check at that point. I don't add any liquid. You will have drippings when you are done. These can be made into a sauce. Brisket packer will take abut 4 hours to reheat.

I forgot to ask, are these the same day?
Thanks, they're 2 days apart. So I'll probably go 2 cooks but if I have 2 in the same day I'll deffinetly use the plan you laid out.

Thanks a lot
