If you have the time to cook on Friday cook them until they are done, let them rest, wrap and place int the fridge. You can reheat on Saturday in the oven or start a fire in the Bandera if you want make it an experience for guests. Any juice you save from the brisket can be added back to the foil pack when you reheat them to help keep them moist.
If you have sides to go with the Q it sounds like you have plenty of food. Especially if you have some good red beans and rice to go with the shrimp!
You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline - it helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer. --Frank Zappa
