Finally, here are the pics from the party.

The brisket turned out great - almost all of the three whole briskets were gone and nothing was left of the shrimp boil.

The great suggestions I got on this site really made a difference - they were:

1. Cooked the brisket on Friday instead of the day of the party (Saturday)

2. After the briskets rested in a cooler for 3 hours, I opened them up, sucked the juice out and saved it, let them cool to almost room temp and then wrapped them real good in Suran wrap and then in two layers of foil and put them in a cooler with ice for the night. The next day I fired up the 'dera and heated them up to 140 slowly (still in the Suran wrap and foil). I then sliced and poured a little of the de-fatted juice back over them. It really came out great - you cannot believe all the complements from the adults and the kids. You had to be quick to get some with twenty-two 18 year olds in line.

Thanks again for the great suggestions.
