Default Brisket and Pork Shoulder Together - times?

This weekend I was thinking about doing a brisket and a pork shoulder in my WSM 18.5 inch. I was going to put the brisket on the bottom.

Let's say I maintain 250-260 all day. What times am I looking at for the brisket? I'm fairly comfortable with the pork shoulder but I've never done a brisket before, let a long a brisket, shoulder combo.

Thoughts on cooking times?

Weber Performer, 18.5" WSM, UDS.

If you go with the same temperature as normal, the butt will take longer than you are used to. I have had it go various ways, from brisket first to butt first being done. At 275F or so in a small cooker, like a kettle, it will be 7 to 8 hours, in a UDS, I had one recently that the brisket clocked in at 5 hours, the butts at 8 hours.

For your first Brisket I would stay at 225-250 and start check the internal temp at 5.5 hours then every half hour there after till it hits 200 and the probe goes in the side easy.
